The Agriculture Club (Ag Club) at the University of Hawai‘i at Hilo plays a vital role in encouraging students in the College of Agriculture, Forestry, and Natural Resource Management (CAFNRM) to engage in relevant activities that will enhance their academic experience in the university. Members partake in opportunities such as field trips, workshops, and fundraising that allow them to network with alumni who could be potential employers. Above all, the club renders service to the university and community at large.
A registered student organization, the Ag Club is instrumental in spearheading one of the most memorable gatherings of faculty, staff and students of the college at the end of each semester—the Ag Seniors Awards and Banquet. This spring semester, the club has more than 40 students from the college signed up to participate in the banquet.
Board members joined because they want to get to know their peers within the college as well as have opportunities to explore local agriculture.
