As you send your college student on his/her way, remember they can network with peers and industry professionals, build upon career and leader skills and develop their voice as advocates for agriculture through their college’s Collegiate Farm Bureau chapter.
Thirteen chapters across Michigan organize and host a variety of events designed by the chapter members for the chapter members. Chapters have held financial informational speaker panels, participated workshops on public policy, hosted a Michigan-commodity Thanksgiving dinner, volunteered to beautify their community with public gardens and flower beds, organized business and farm tours, and resume/interview critique nights — and everything in between!
Students can learn more at the Collegiate Farm Bureau website and are encouraged to reach out to their college’s advisor:
