All First-Year students in the College of Agriculture and Exploratory Studies Program are invited to apply for this Learning Community to discover the past and present innovations and technologies of agriculture! Students will be enrolled in a Learning Community specific course entited "Agricultural Technology and Innovation," a one-credit course that will cover a broad range of technologies including environmental protection, plant production, livestock systems, and agricultural machinery and should give insight to future agriculture systems and uncover what has enabled us to leave the (not so distant) past which included 20 bu. per acre corn, 10 lb. milk per cow per day, high labor requirements, high storage losses, and unsanitary food preparation. LC activities will include tours of real-world applications and social activities to help you acclimate to campus, learn of resources available to help you succeed and discover many possibilities for engagement within Purdue Agriculture. The living component is not required, but encouraged for students looking for roommates and neighbors with similar interests. Apply for the Agriculture Technology and Innovation LC today to explore the advances in agriculture!
