Senior Spotlight: Derrick Kapayou

December 5, 2018


Introducing Derrick Kapayou, our next senior spotlight. He is a soil science and environmental quality option student. After graduation, he will be attending graduate school. Derrick is going to miss his mid-day naps after he graduates. But he is excited for the income that accompanies full time employment.

His favorite memory from Agronomy was Dr. Christian’s crop seed ID class, and his time spent in the greenhouse learning plant specimens. His Iowa State experience has involved bartending on the weekends and Agronomy studies all week.

Advice for younger students?

“Do not procrastinate on your classwork and look for jobs within the Agronomy field over summer breaks. I recommend taking notes during lecture! I found this helped me to remember smaller details, long after the lecture was over.”
