College of Agriculture

Why should I join MANRRS?

There’s no doubt your college professors want you to learn a lot in their classrooms. But student clubs and organizations can help you learn other important lessons outside the classroom. Here are some of the reasons why joining a student group can help you expand your horizons:

  • interaction with peers
  • informal interaction with faculty and staff (great contacts for recommendations and other help)
  • line item for your resume
  • demonstrate interest in your discipline
  • group-sponsored social activities
  • national disciplinary and career contacts
  • inclusion in MANRRS national directory
  • meet outstanding professionals in College Minority Role Model Series
  • scholarship, internship, and career information
  • academic action alerts
  • tutoring in technical agriculture courses.
