The WORLD AG EXPO , which takes place each February in Tulare, California, plays host to thousands of vendors and participants in the largest annual agriculture exposition in the world. The show was started in 1958 and has grown each year. College of the Sequoias Ag Ambassadors are among a group of agriculture programs from the University of California Davis (UCD), Cal State University Fresno (CSUF), California Polytechnic University (Cal Poly), and others that maintains a fun, educational and informational booth.
In addition, the COS Student Ag Council operates two food booths within the grounds of the Expo. This event is the major fundraiser for the Ag Council during the year and students representing all areas of ag study volunteer their time. This is also an opportunity for students from different areas of ag study to meet and work alongside each other for a goal that benefits all students in the program.
The show gives students the opportunity to see first hand the latest innovations in production agriculture and meet face-to-face with the people directly responsible for those innovations. Students are able to attend specialized presentations and seminars during the show as well. This is another valuable method by which agriculture students are able to enhance their learning experience while attending College of the Sequoias.
