Business minor is perfect supplement for Gangwish, nutrition major

Jena Gangwish originally came to the University of Nebraska-Lincoln to study pre-med and major in accounting so she could run her own medical practice. Then priorities changed and she decided that family aspirations were more suited to a path in a physician’s assistant graduate program. To prepare, she changed her major to nutrition through the College of Education and Human Sciences. However, she knew she still wanted business to remain a big part of her college education and also signed up for the business minor at the UNL College of Business Administration.
