What Leadership Opportunities are Available to First Year Students?

What kind of Events does FB&A Host?

Social - FB&A hosts regular community-building outings such as trips to the farmers market, coffee tastings at a local roastery, and study breaks during finals at nearby cafes.

Education - While many social events often double as educational events due to Q&A sessions with local farmers or business owners, the club also hosts formalized education sessions. For instance, each year the club hosts an AgTech panel in the fall which has included speakers from Indigo Ag and Sound Ag. We also host education workshops throughout the year like our food waste business solution education session with ReFED.

Careers - FB&A organizes several career events throughout the year. Each year kicks off with our annual Internship Panel in which freshly returned MBA2s and MBA3s give insight on their internship experience. Throughout the rest of the year, FB&A , members have the opportunity to arrange coffee chats with MBA2s and 3, attend exclusive company presentations and fireside chats with industry leaders.
