Clubs & Activities

Through clubs and activities students learn more about the agriculture communications industry, network with professionals, strengthen skills, build portfolios, establish friendships, and make memories.

Student Advancement Team

The ACJ Advancement Team, fondly known as the A-Team, is a student-led program recruitment and retention effort. You can think of this team as “Ag Ambassadors” exclusively for our degree program. Many high school students don’t know that agricultural communications exists as a career field. A-Team members work to develop materials and strategies to reach those students.

If you are interested in joining the team or would like to request a visit from an A-Team member, contact Dr. Nellie Hill, Umberger 307 or email, nlhill@ksu.edu

Agricultural Communicators of Tomorrow

There are many ways to get involved in clubs and activities at K-State. Whether it's a club related to your major or participating in a community service project, the opportunities are endless. Agricultural Communicators of Tomorrow is for those who want to communicate within the broad realm of agriculture. Our meetings include social, professional, and business aspects and are a great way to meet students in the agricultural communications major, as well as others. The group offers many opportunities for those looking to obtain further experience in communications. We are excited about this year and all that we have to offer! Look on this page, as well as our Facebook and Twitter pages, for more information.
