Our students know that there’s more to college life than just going to class. They’re engaged with the university community, with our industry partners and stakeholders, with each other. In fact, most would agree that our department feels like a big family.

If you’re interested in joining our family — or simply want to find out what it’s like to be a student here — we have a number of opportunities for you to explore.

Our Summer Institute, for example, gives high-schoolers the chance to roll up your sleeves and do real work. And we offer youth programs like 4-H that allow you to build leadership and community engagement skills that are critical to success in college.

Whether you’re a member of our flock or a chick who hasn’t quite left the nest, opportunities for growth are plentiful in our department. Seize yours today.

Youth Programs

It’s never too early to start training the next generation of leaders. That’s why we’re committed to providing opportunities for youth development, especially through North Carolina 4-H. From the Youth Market Turkey Show to the 4-H Avian Bowl Competition, our programs are designed to help children of all ages develop the skills they need to succeed. Opportunities abound. Jump in today!
