College of Agriculture & Natural Resources

Benjamin Zimmitti - Agricultural and Resource Economics

Hometown: 
Grew up in South Brunswick, New Jersey. Now, Frederick, MD is home.
Career Goal: 
Changes with the seasons it seems. But I would love to find myself working for a non-profit addressing food insecurity in US cities. Or International Agricultural Development work with the UN... Like I said, changes with the seasons.
Clubs: 
Maryland L.E.A.D. Program, Colleges Against Cancer, AGNR Student Ambassadors, AGNR Peer Mentor
Favorite Place on Campus: 
Gotta love the postcard shot on McKeldin Mall really early in the morning!
Advice for New Students: 
Don't let school get in the way of your education! Yes. Go to class always and apply yourself academically, but don't let all the fantastic extracurricular and interpersonal opportunities that exist on and around this campus pass you by! I would say some of my greatest learning experiences have come outside the classroom during my time at UMD! E-mail me at: bzimmitti@gmail.com
