Agricultural Education and Studies (AGEDS)

"The best part about being a part of a learning community is getting to meet other people that have the exact same interests as you! It is meeting people with the same passions and career goals, but with different backgrounds, outlooks, and ideas about issues and topics."   -Katrina
