This organization gives students the opportunity to become involved in Farm Bureau while learning about agricultural issues and policies as well as developing future leaders for the agricultural industry. The Bureau’s purpose is to make the business of farming more profitable, and the community a better place to live. Farm Bureau provides an organization in which members may secure the benefits of united efforts in a way which could never be accomplished through individual effort.

The DARE Graduate Student Association (GSA) is an informal group whose purpose is to provide an opportunity for current, prospective, and alumni graduate students to interact and network with other students and professors, and to address the day-to-day issues faced by these students. The GSA provides a conduit which facilitates communication between students and faculty in order to ensure a smooth and easy transition into the department, as well as through every day life as a graduate student. The GSA also organizes several recreational activities which range from hiking trips to barbecues to evenings out in Historic Fort Collins.
