Student Opportunities

Clubs and organizations are a fantastic way to immerse yourself in the AGI and campus communities and form a Pack of friends along the way.

AGI Ambassadors

The Agricultural Institute selects a group of responsible student leaders to serve as AGI Ambassadors.

Ambassadors are the student voice of our AGI and serve as liaisons between the campus and the community. To be an AGI Ambassador is an honor and distinction.

Ambassadors assist with AGI functions and recruiting efforts. They represent various AGI departments and demonstrate outstanding academic achievement, student leadership, and college enthusiasm.

To be considered, please complete the online AGI Ambassador application. The application is currently closed and will reopen November 2020.

Requirements for Applying:

  • Minimum 2.5 GPA
  • One recommendation from an instructor

Requirements as an Ambassador:

  • Attend 5 events per semester
  • Miss no more than two meetings per semester
  • Maintain a 2.5 GPA

If you are an instructor or advisor and would like to recommend a student, complete and submit the online AGI Ambassador recommendation form.

If you are interested in having an Ambassador speak at your high school or event, contact Alyssa Degreenia: ardegree@ncsu.edu.

AGI Club

Get out of the classroom and meet other AGI students through the AGI Club. The club hosts a variety of fun social activities including bowling, game nights, holiday parties, and outings to NC State baseball games. But the AGI Club isn’t all fun and games. Club members also do some serious good. During the holiday season, they organize donations for the Raleigh Rescue Mission. They have also volunteered at the NC State Fair at the NC Dairy Council Milking Booth, and at the Southern Farm Show. Professional development also is a focus, and industry representatives come to campus and speak to students.

“I have learned that getting involved makes the college experience more exciting,” said Jared Parks, club member. “The AGI Club has great potential for all of the Agriculture Institute students to get involved in the local community and the university, in service and in the progression of agriculture.”
