Join in the fun with AHGSA!
The Agronomy and Horticulture Graduate Student Association will serve as the representative body for graduate students in the Department of Agronomy and Horticulture at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. We work to promote interaction and a closer relationship among graduate students. The AHGSA will serve as a channel of communication between graduate students and faculty and staff. We will also investigate problems and issues unique to graduate students and propose solutions to them.
