The purpose of this organization shall be:
Aggies & Collegiate 4-H was the first organization that I joined as a student at Wilmington College! It has been clear from the start that this organization supports and builds the agricultural community while strengthening personal development in its members. My involvement has opened many doors for me, from developing networking to followership skills, I am thankful I made the choice to join. – Chyann Kendel
Aggies is a great organization that allows students to not only gain friendships through collegiate 4H, but also gives students activities to participate in that allows growth in knowledge! The activities done throughout Aggies not only allows the students in the organization to learn but also allows learning growth for students. Aggies is absolutely an organization I would highly recommend to incoming students or even students that aren’t already in the organization! – Zack DeAtley
Aggies has allowed me to further my skills and experiences in the agriculture industry, while creating new friendships and connections. – Carley Asher
