College Aggies Online is an initiative of the Alliance that connects college students from across the country who are interested in promoting agriculture. Participants receive training and instructions from industry professionals and enjoy access to a private forum to post information about current and emerging issues facing farmers and ranchers.
The online community provides resources to students on key issues to help them better utilize tools such as YouTube, Facebook and Twitter to share agriculture's story with the public. Agriculture-focused clubs from all universities with an agricultural academic program across the U.S. are invited to sign up for the program. Each member will receive an individual, customizable account. Student groups earn points by posting blogs, photos and videos to the forum and by participating in online outreach activities.
