Agriculture is his passion
Meet Devin Denny—an Alabama native who loves fishing, hunting, gardening and being outdoors. He’s a sophomore at Auburn studying Agricultural Business + Economics, and he wouldn’t have it any other way.
“I’m studying agriculture because it’s always been a part of who I am. I grew up outdoors, hunting and fishing. We would always plant for fields to prepare for hunting season. Plus, we maintained a garden at our house, which made me want to learn more about the industry.”Devin Denny

He’s only in his sophomore year, and many of his courses have already included excursions, allowing students to see how Auburn Agriculture contributes to the university and beyond.
“In one class, we took a tour of the old rotation—a research site for crops on campus. And in another class, we visited the sports turf facility on campus, which is where they do research for weed sciences and tarps. I enjoyed how interactive and informative these opportunities were.”Devin Denny
Devin’s hands-on learning experiences have confirmed his passion for agriculture. Upon graduation, he hopes to work with an agricultural firm in sales or economic strategy.
