Herbert College of Agriculture Senior Ariana Bradley wakes up at 4:30 a.m. to feed hungry calves at the East Tennessee AgResearch and Education Center: Little River Animal and Environmental Unit in Walland, Tennessee.

The Animal Science student works with the dairy calves as part of an internship program at the center.

“It really enhances my learning, and it pieces everything together,” says Bradley.

Thanks in part to scholarships, Bradley is able to live and work on site in Walland to expand her classroom experience. But that also means she travels back to campus for lectures and labs.

“There are some times where I have woken up and fed calves, got myself ready, and went to school at 8 a.m.” says Bradley. “Those are really tough days but I have survived. It’s not that bad, but it is stretching sometimes.”

However, scholarships and the live/work internship mean that financial concerns are not added to Bradley’s already heavy academic load.
