Name and title:
Carl B. Schreck, Professor of Fisheries and Unit Leader
Where are you from?
Born and raised in San Francisco
Where did you attend college?
University of California, Berkeley as an undergrad
Colorado State University for grad school
What is your favorite college memory?
There are tons, but one sharing the top with a couple of others has to be my wife and I living out of a backpack for 72 days straight in the High Sierras of California as part of my Master’s research.
What do you like most about OSU?
No question! The friendly people in general and the family atmosphere in my department.
What is your favorite agricultural commodity?
Chocolate and wine. Sorry, can’t pick one over the other.
What is something that you enjoy doing in your free time?
Do you have any advice for students in the College of Agricultural Sciences?
Don’t miss out on taking advantage of all of the neat courses and other experiences available at OSU that will enrich your life beyond landing a job after graduation. Worded another way, it is more important in the long run to come out of here with a good general education that allows you to think and make sound decisions than a profession.
