Yesterday I attended the largest agriculture career fair in the nation with 268 companies. The Leid Recreation Center at Iowa State University was filled with companies, recruiters, and potential students who would fill internships and full time employment. If you think students are lazy, agriculture companies arn't hiring, and Iowa State University isn't be best University in the nation, I believe the career fair yesterday proved these thoughts to be true.
You're bacon my heart when you don't order tickets to the Iowa State Bacon Expo on November 8th in Ames, Iowa.
Being the only student ran bacon festivle in the county, this year’s family-themed event will feature industry representatives and local vendors, serving novelty bacon items and hundreds of pounds of bacon. Bacon Expo unique in the fact that it is focused on education, which is my job as Education Chair. The goal is to provide an alcohol-free, fun atmosphere for bacon enthusiasts, while showcasing student organizations and educational opportunities in the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences at Iowa State.

See you Saturday, November 8th in Ames!
The agricutlure industry is always working on feeding the world and giving back to their communities.
One in five children in the United States are food insecure, according to nokidhungry.com. With September being National Hunger Action month, the largest club on Iowa State University’s campus decided to take action.
Day two of why agriculture is awesome: the College of Agriculture! No other college spends all week celebrating their students, serving lunch everyday for free, hosting a concert, holding fun events for students to participate in, organizing a Hunger Fight (which packaged over 60,264 meals for people in need). The whole week was a huge success thanks to the CALS Council who worked very hard to make it happen. Every one on campus saw the College of Agriculture making a positive impact in student’s lives. I love being part of such an awesome industry.
Next up: the largest agriculture career fair in the nation, held at Iowa State University on October 14, 2014.
I have decided on a topic for my blogging challenge, for the next 30 days I'll focus each day on why agriculture is a great industry to be in.
The last week of September means the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences celebrates on Iowa State's campus. Thursday night they sponsored a concert in the new livestock pavilion and David Nail had the honor to perform. Agriculture brings opportunities, including in other industries like music. Thanks to the college of agriculture my friend Maria was also to make a huge debut, opening for David Nail! As a junior at Iowa State, it was so cool to see her share her amazing talent with students and Ames residents. Hopefully some day we will look back and will thank agriculture for helping start Maria Doud on an amazing music career. And even if this isn't the case, thanks to CALS Council and a concert in the livestock pavilion, everyone had great memories and good fun.
