Almost all of our students are involved in an agricultural organization; many are in several. Whatever your interests are, you will find that the groups within the school will give you plenty of opportunities to make new friends, enhance your education and simply have a lot of fun.
Ag Ambassadors are a group of agriculture majors chosen according to special criteria. They promote Northwest and the School of Agricultural Sciences at national and state FFA conventions and various community and campus events. They also give tours of the school's facilities to prospective students.
