You'll move as a group at this event, through programming designed to introduce you to the multifaceted experience available on this close-knit campus. 

The day kicks-off with a welcome from Dean Gray, followed by an introduction to academics, unique offerings, and details on where an agriculture degree can take you. From there, we’ll shake it up with trivia and prizes, snacks and swag, and a series of panels where you can hear directly from professors, advisors, and current students. 

After that, you’ll take part in an academic, support services and student life fair, where you can lean more and ask questions. We’ll do lunch in meal hall, and you’ll have the chance to take a line dancing class or see an engineering demo. 

We’ll wrap the day up with an enhanced tour of our campus living lab. This will include visits to the Engineering workshop, Landscape Architecture design studio, Plant Science greenhouse, residence, and Aquaculture labs.
