Whom do you want to thank?
First, my advisor – Dr. Dilip Panthee. He is really nice and considerate, especially that he could understand me even though I made mistakes and try to give me useful advice. My committee, Frank and Hamid, both offer me their time and thoughts, which inspired and encouraged me a lot.

People is one of the best thing studying here. Peers, professors, staff, everyone I met here is warm and friendly.
Advisor Comments (Dilip R. Panthee):
Ms. Gong joined my program in the Fall of 2017. She earned double major – Horticultural Science and Statistics. She is very smart and very easy to get along with everyone. I wish her good luck in her future career!
