Penn State to Hold Sixth Annual Ag Day Today

Ag Day

The College of Agriculture Sciences will host its annual Ag Day from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. today. The event will take place at two locations on campus: outside of the Creamery and inside Alumni Hall in the HUB.

The event offers the public a chance to see what students are doing in the college, which was the original foundation of the university.

At the Creamery, there will be several demonstrations of things like tree climbing and log splitting.┬áThe day’s main attraction, though, are the numerous animals that students can interact with, almost like a petting zoo.

For the more mature crowd, there will an information session on beer and wine making, so if you’ve ever wanted to learn how to make your own home brew, make sure you check it out.

Alumni Hall will host interactive booths from clubs and organizations within the college and from members of the agricultural industry. Shaver’s Creek nature center will also be present, demonstrating birds of prey, like owls, hawks, and falcons, flying inside of Alumni Hall. Students will also have the opportunity to get free Creamery ice cream if they visit four booths throughout the day.

The full list of events can be found on the event’s official Facebook page.
