Clubs & Organizations
Find A Student Club & Get Involved!
Employers are not only looking to hire graduates that are well rounded in experiences inside but also outside the classroom. Participating in a student club or organization is as much a part of the college experience as attending lectures and taking finals.
Student clubs are a great way to meet new people who share your interests, enthusiasm, build your resume/cv, and to make friendships that will last a lifetime.
Make the most of your Auburn experience by getting involved in at least one student organization. Campus-wide, Auburn has 300 student clubs, 23 of which are in the College of Agriculture. Browse our groups, find your passion and join.
As the official representatives of the College of Agriculture, the Alabama Agricultural Experiment Station and the Ag Alumni Association, Ag Ambassadors promote the college and Auburn University.
