Student Organizations

Want to have fun and develop your leadership skills and professional contacts at the same time? Then join one or more of the College's student clubs and organizations. There are more than 30 to choose from, and each gives you the opportunity to apply what you're learning in the classroom while making lifelong friends. Here are a few organizations you might consider joining as an agricultural systems management student:

  • Agricultural Systems Management Club is a group of ASM majors and other CAFNR students that meets the first Wednesday of every month to discuss club business such as upcoming events and group trips. Most meetings begin with a meal and a chance to mingle with other members. Members take part in events such as: international study abroad trips, Spring Lawn Mower Clinic, and Spring Trip just to name a few. In the past, students have had the opportunity to engage in two-week international experiences to Germany, England, Brazil and Costa Rica to study agriculture and see some extraordinary sites. The Spring Lawn Mower Clinic allows members to put their mechanical, business and people skills to use when they take on the task of servicing more than 200 mowers for the public each spring. Spring Trips to Midwestern companies such as John Deere, Vermeer and Kinze reward members for their participation and hard work.

  • Alpha MU, the agricultural systems management honor society, is comprised of selected students who demonstrate high scholarship and outstanding leadership in the ASM program. The objective is to develop skilled, motivated leaders capable of contributing to the agriculture industry.
  • "Torque-N-Tigers" is a club that designs and builds a quarter-scale tractor to participate in the American Society of Agricultural Engineers' national design and tractor pull competition. The club gives students the opportunity to gain practical experience while developing communication, leadership and teamwork skills.
