College of Agriculture

Prospective Students

Star Students

With more than 700 declared agriculture majors, the College of Agriculture at Chico State is large enough to provide an outstanding agriculture education, yet small enough to offer unique opportunities for student involvement. We think of our college as a family, and if you are enthusiastic and eager to learn, you will have no trouble finding your home among us.

The College of Agriculture is guided by a student-centered, hand-on learning philosophy. With an 800-acre University Farm that is accessible to all students, nearly a dozen agriculture organizations ranging from Society of Ag Managers to the Stock Dog Association, and a strong tie to the agricultural community, the experiences our students gain during their time at the CSU, Chico College of Agriculture will prepare them for a rewarding career in agriculture or admission to graduate or professional school.

The Outreach and Retention Office is here to help you plan for your education in the College of Agriculture. We stand ready to help you with the admission process by connecting you with a faculty advisor, helping you to get access to scholarship information, and eventually finding the right internship or job.
