"GSA was one of the best and most eye-opening experiences of my life. People don't realize it, but agriculture connects to every single area of science, society, policy, and economics in so many ways. Out of all the governor's schools, Virginia Governor's School for Agriculture provides the most holistic experience, and that is why I loved it. I took courses in economics, computer science, robotics, vet science, biotechnology, and so many more. And besides academics, I bonded with great, new friends and had a lot of fun hanging out on hikes, movies, and field trips. I'd recommend Governor's School for Agriculture to everybody!" - Juliana Yun, Class of 2014
