1 Iowa State University Ames, IA

Those who come to Iowa State University to major in agricultural disciplines should think of themselves not only as students but also as active participants in the future of farming and related areas. The institution’s commitment to training tomorrow’s leaders is exemplified in a senior-level capstone course fondly known as Ag450 Farm. Students get to manage the operations of the university’s 1,400-acre farm complete with corn, soybeans and pigs—oh my! Talk about putting the problem solving, decision-making, and communication skills learned in class to use. As a land-grant institution, the university focuses much of its agricultural research efforts on advances that will help the people of Iowa. However, Iowa State is also quite active on the global level and encourages studying abroad. More than 400 students from the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences (CALS) traveled last year, doing everything from studying soil and crops in Costa Rica to examining agricultural world markets in Spain. The combination of thorough classroom training and hands-on experience prepares Iowa State agricultural students for post-graduation success. Nearly 98 percent of CALS graduates reported they were working, continuing their education, or serving in the military within six months of receiving their diplomas. The annual Agriculture and Life Sciences Fall Career Day brings more than 250 employers directly to campus, making the event one of the largest of its kind in the nation.
