Purpose

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.

Department Events

Fall Picnic

Each fall, the AHGSA holds a cookout for the students, faculty and staff. This event enhances networking and interaction relationships among peers within the Department. It is a great way to socialize and get to know others while taking a break from work. The meal is prepared by a team of students, the feedback received from participants has always been positive.

Sweet-Corn Giveaway

For several years, the AHGSA student club has made possible sweet-corn giveaways over the course of the summer. This is an open-to-public event where anyone can participate and get free sweet-corn to enjoy at home comfort. Free-will donations are accepted and help to support the annual activities of the club. The event is made possible by joined efforts of the Agronomy Farms and the student club.

Spring Appreciation Awards Banquet

Each spring the AHGSA holds a banquet to honor the achievements of students, faculty and staff in the Department of Agronomy and Horticulture. This year the AHGSA raised more than $300 to be used toward traveling scholarships.

Elevator Speech Contest

Often, we only have approximately 45 seconds to make an impression. Those seconds are referred to as your "elevator speech". Starting in 2019, the Entomology, Plant Pathology, and Agronomy & Horticulture departments have put together an annual and interdepartmental Elevator Speech Contest. Contestants have 3 minutes to concisely yet conversationally talk about their research while competing against other grad students for scholarly recognitions and cash prizes.
