Welcome to the Ferguson Family!

You are not a number in our college — you are an individual with unique needs, interests and goals. We make it a top priority to create a family atmosphere in and out of the classroom, while still challenging you with rigorous and engaging academics offered by our dedicated faculty, and plenty of opportunity for gaining real-world experience.
Students in our college come from both urban settings and traditional agricultural backgrounds. They are first-generation, legacy, in-state, out-of-state and out-of-country students. This adds strength to the Ferguson College of Agriculture experience.

Faculty Connections

Hands-On Learning

Our passion is helping you embrace your potential, and giving you the tools to make the most of your education. With hands-on learning opportunities in every major, you will gain experience in and out of the classroom.

We believe in the value of these experiences that will prepare you for real-world success.

You can choose to participate in short- or long-term study abroad courses throughout the year.
