With wheat fields within miles of each side of campus, Northwestern Oklahoma State University lies in the heart of an agricultural environment. NWOSU has an organization that fits with this environment, Aggie Club.

Northwestern’s Aggie Club is an agricultural student organization, but it’s not just for Agriculture majors. The club is open to all students, regardless of their major or minor. All students who enjoy agricultural pursuits are encouraged to join.

Trae Watson, president of Aggie Club, says that there is an emphasis on collaborating as like-minded individuals. “The main purpose is just to have a great time with fellow NWOSU students. We are a very relaxed club, and that allows people to have more fun,” said Watson.

The Aggie Club meets twice a month in Jesse Dunn 128 or at the Northwestern farm.

The organization participates in events like working local and OYE stock shows and discussing current agricultural issues. The organization is also active on campus, participating in events like homecoming and campus cleanup day.

Kendra Reining, a sophomore member of Aggie Club, says that she particularly enjoys the club’s involvement with homecoming. “My favorite part of Aggie club is coming together and building the float. It’s fun seeing everyone’s creative side and finishing a project everyone can be proud of.”

Watson emphasizes that Aggie Club is for all students, in saying, “I would encourage all students to join just to get active while at Northwestern. It’s a one of a kind club.”
