About the External Affairs Executive Commissioner

Jacob Dailey

Hometown: Canton, Kansas

Major: Agricultural Systems Management and Agricultural Education

Favorite Hobby: In the extremely rare event that I do have any amount of free time, I like to work with leather - carving, stamping, embossing, etc. But usually I spend my free time catching up with friends around campus.

Fun Fact: I refer to the northern food 'hotdish' as casserole and am constantly mocked because of it.

Favorite Thing About NDSU: The people here make it feel like home.

Why you chose NDSU: The size of campus and the affordability and quality of the education attracted me, but the feeling of family made me stay.

Why you are in Student Government: I joined Student Government as a student senator quickly after coming to NDSU. I was looking for a way to get involved and meet people on campus. I found exactly that and so much more.

Organizations: Agriculture Systems Management Club, Agriculture Week Coalition, Farmhouse Fraternity, and Agriculture Future of America.
