Undergraduate students meeting a 3.0 GPA and graduate students meeting a 3.5 GPA are nominated for induction into ATA every April. For more information on ATA, please contact Dr. Ed Osborne.
UF Collegiate FFA is an organization affiliated with the National FFA Organization. Our goal is to develop students into young professionals by involving them in activities and programs that will enhance their ability to communicate and lead groups of people on a daily basis. CFFA participates in many campus wide events and are very active within the AEC Department. It is a great way to get to know individuals who are interested and involved in the Ag industry! Dr. Andrew Thoron serves as the faculty sponsor for this group. Check out our department’s Collegiate FFA group on Facebook!
