The Agribusiness Club creates social and professional opportunities for students to prepare for the future, while networking with like-minded students, faculty members, and professionals in the agribusiness industries. A primary goal of the club is to provide students to gain valuable insights about the agribusiness industry outside of the classroom. The club also fosters outside-of-the-classroom interactions between students and faculty. Finally, the Agribusiness Club presents opportunities for participation in a wide range of social and community-service activities.
Activities and Opportunities
Each year, club members elect a new officer team consisting of a President, Vice President, Treasurer, Secretary, and two Agricultural Student Affairs Council Representatives. Any member who wants to get involved can run for office! Club activities include field trips to visit a wide range of agribusiness firms. Along with the field trips, guest speakers from local, regional and even national agribusiness companies create excellent networking opportunities. Students may also take advantage of resume-building opportunities to get involved in the Agricultural and Applied Economics Association Quiz Bowl Competition and Food Marketing Challenges, which allows teams of students to travel nationally to compete against teams from other universities to demonstrate their knowledge of agribusiness.
The club is open to any and all majors in the College of Agricultural and Life Sciences. For more information about the club, or to get involved, please contact the club advisor Dr. Aaron Johnson.
