Opportunity in Leadership
Through this leadership role, returning students have the opportunity to assist new students with their transition into OSU and the Ferguson College of Agriculture by answering questions and providing guidance from a student’s perspective. AG 1011 SAMs also assist the course professor with class activities, announcements, group activities and facility tours.
