A-Day: The Early Years
A-Day is the annual agricultural show put on each spring since 1949 by the students of the college. It is the premiere event of the school year, eagerly anticipated by the campus community and the local community as well. The A-Day program consists of exhibits and demonstrations involving every major at the college. A-Days have featured exhibitions of poultry, livestock and farm machinery along with flower shows, milking contests and log sawing contests. All the work for A-Day, including planning and preparation, is done by the students.
