Do you want to experience college life, make new friends, attend workshops and have a whole lot of fun? Join us for Ag Days 2014 | September 26 - 28.
NEW for 2014!
*Note to Teachers/Advisors:
- No more "blocks". Register for each of the workshops you are interested in attending.
- Workshops are now 45 minutes in length, which is more reflective of a real college course time.
- Career elements purposefully integrated into the workshop schedule. Students may interact with agricultural professionals, engage in activities which represent specific careers, and be exposed to career related information.
- New workshop topics such as an agricultural issue panel discussion with agribusiness professionals, water quality monitoring in the field, 3-D printing, and financial management.
Ag Days 2014 now features even more of a real-world college experience, where students travel to their individual classes just like a college student would. After registration and the informational meeting, all Ag Days participants will experience Where is Joe Vandal?
, a fun activity geared to help students navigate campus. There will also be designated "Help Points" on campus with staff available to direct students during the workshop times. A campus map will be included in each registration packet.
Dance through the Decades: 70’s, 80’s, and 90’s (evening event on Friday, Sept. 26 9:00-11:00 p.m.) will include staff from campus security, who will be available to escort students from the university’s Memorial Gym back to the Student Recreation Center where students will spend the night.
With the generous donation from CHS, the College of Agricultural and Life Sciences is able to help defray the cost of transportation for the groups of high school students with teacher chaperones. Buses will depart from Twin Falls and Boise on Friday, September 26th. If you have a group and would like to reserve your seat on the bus, please contact our Academic Programs office directly at (208) 885-7984 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Male and female students will have separate sleeping areas within the Student Recreation Center on campus. University staff will be available and accompanying teachers/advisors are encouraged to stay with students of the same gender.
Bedding will not be provided. Bring your own sleeping bag, pillow, towel, toiletries, and clothing. Be prepared for all weather conditions.
