As a student in the College of Agricultural Sciences (CAS), you gain so much from participating in student clubs, activities, professional organizations, and intercollegiate competitions. And, you have a lot of fun too!

Here are some reasons why it’s important to be involved in campus activities:

  1. You gain the leadership, teamwork, and field experience that employers and scholarship donors look for.
  2. You meet potential employers or those who know potential employers.
  3. You can go on fun field trips, such as white-water rafting on the McKenzie River, camping in Oregon’s Hells Canyon, or viewing Victoria Island’s Buchart Gardens.
  4. You make new friends.

You can join any club no matter what your academic major is.

Agricultural Executive Council

Most CAS clubs and organizations are members of the Agricultural Executive Council, the college’s student government. The council includes elected officers and representatives from each member club or organization.

Ambassadors for Agriculture, Forestry and Natural Resources

Would you enjoy developing and enhancing your public speaking, time management skills, individual and group dynamics while engaging in activities that promote the College of Agricultural Sciences and the College of Forestry? You can develop these skills, prepare for student and pre-professional success, and enjoy doing so with several other students from both Colleges by becoming an Ambassador for Agriculture, Forestry, and Natural Resources.

Ambassadors have the opportunity to attend on and off-campus recruiting events; make presentations; attend professional conferences, stakeholder events; engage in the marketing and promotion efforts of both colleges; and host students and parents to campus. As an Ambassador, you are able to meet and make valuable relationships with students, alumni, and staff throughout Oregon State University.
