Ohio State student organization hosts agricultural outreach event on campus

The Agricultural Communicators of Tomorrow (ACT) student organization hosted the 3rd Annual “Farmers Share” on The Ohio State University campus on Wednesday, April 12.

As a part of this event, student organizations in the College of Food, Agricultural, and Environmental Sciences provided interactive activities to engage Ohio State students with the agricultural industry.

Students were able to make ethanol, milk a cow, drive a combine simulator and engage with live sheep and goats, among education displays about plant diseases, the use of soybeans in food production and food processing, the meat industry and women’s roles in agriculture.

“This event allows Ohio State students who may have no connection to the agricultural industry experience it first hand through hands-on interaction and dicusssion with their peers,” said Megan Besancon, senior in agricultural communication and president of Ohio State ACT. “Students are always fascinated to learn about the differerent uses of soybean oil and sheeps wool in their every day lives.”

ACT is a student organization that provides professional and academic development for members and promotes the agriculture industry. In 2016, ACT was named the Ed Johnston Outstanding Student Organization in the College of Food, Agricultural, and Environmental Sciences at Ohio State.

While membership is open to any Ohio State student, many member’s of ACT are majoring in agricultural communication, which prepares students to plan, develop, and implement a communication campaign, using visual media, writing and editing. Students study crisis communication, graphic design, marketing, and journalism so they can spread the word about agriculture.
