Student Clubs

The Department of Agricultural Education, Communications, and Technology works with five organizations that give students the opportunity to become involved. Students often find that getting involved in these organizations provides a way of making new friends and gaining skills that aide in their personal and professional growth. These organizations provide opportunities for students to improve their leadership and communication skills that will benefit them in the future.

 

FFA Alumni 

The FFA Alumni chapter at the University of Arkansas strives to help students who support FFA and agricultural education. Whether you were an FFA member in high school or not this is an opportunity for you to join a registered student organization that supports agricultural education.

 

Collegiate Farm Bureau

Collegiate Farm Bureau was formed in 2002 with support from the Arkansas Farm Bureau Federation. Its goals are to motivate students to become involved in shaping agricultural policy for the state and nation. Members participate in several leadership development opportunities, including the State Collegiate Discussion Meet as well as the State Young Farmers and Ranchers Discussion Meet.
 

Agricultural Communicators of Tomorrow (ACT)

Agricultural Communicators of Tomorrow is designed for students with an interest in agricultural communications. The organization, one of the strongest collegiate agriculture organizations nationally, gives members an opportunity to interact with others with similar interests professionally and at the college level.

 

Agricultural Mechanics Club

The Ag Mech club is an organization for all students interested in agricultural technology. In addition to monthly meetings and field trips, club members conduct (with ACT) a spring lawnmower tune-up clinic and assist with the Arkansas State FFA Agricultural Technology and Mechanical Systems CDE.

 

REPS

Members share their college experiences with prospective FFA and 4-H members, students and parents as well as help the faculty and graduate student recruitment coordinators with additional correspondence and activities. Furthermore, members plan and host departmental events for current students. Applications are made available each semester.
