The Agricultural Sciences Learning Community is for students from any agriculture major. It allows students to develop a community of students with similar majors and to learn skills and strategies for academic success. In addition to building a foundation for success, students in this cohort develop friendships that last throughout their time at SHSU.

"We are very proud to have facilities that serve as hands-on laboratories for learning technical skills. Not only do our students receive a first-class academic experience but they are also expected to learn by doing," Dr. Stanley Kelley, Chair, Agricultural and Industrial Sciences.
