Who are we
Students with a passion for Agronomy and the Agriculture industry. Many of our members have farming backgrounds, some aren't majoring in agriculture at all. Anyone with an interest in Agronomy is welcome to join!
What we do
We are a very active club. Our weekly meetings are composed of business and/or speakers, tours and activities. The business matters may be planning for national or regional meetings, outreach activities or our monthly work sessions. Work sessions include preparing teaching aids for outreach educational programs, FFA, 4-H, Scouts, and other educational institutions.
We host High School/middle school Soil and Crops Invitational contests/CDEs. We provide educational activities and give away popped corn at Purdue's Annual Spring Fest. We serve at the Ag Alumni Fish Fry. We participate in local food and clothing drives and adopt children for Christmas gift giving. This past Valentine's Day we made and distributed cards at the Indiana Veterans Home. As part of SASES we perform community service projects at regional and national meetings and compete in various competitions with other land grant colleges in the nation.
