Meet Tyler

"One of the reasons I decided to enroll at Southern State was the location. It was hard for me to find a college that was close enough to my home where I could commute. I wanted to major in agriculture, so it was the perfect fit. The agriculture program at Southern State is really great. There is a greenhouse on campus which provides a lot of hands-on experience. Tom Smith is a great instructor, always willing to help in any way he can. A variety of classes are offered related to agriculture, anything from Animal Science, Crop Science, Soils, Beef Cattle Management, to Greenhouse Management. If you are interested in agriculture, Southern State has a class for you. If you are not interested in getting a two-year degree, the college also offers a one-year certificate in Horticulture. The greenhouse provides a perfect learning environment for that."

"My time spent at Southern State has been very beneficial and I have learned a lot that will help me in my future career. I am proud to say that I am a Southern State graduate. I made a lot of friends and memories during my time here and I would encourage anyone interested in making agriculture a career, to check out Southern State’s Agriculture program. They have a lot to offer!"
