Oklahoma State University's Chapter of Alpha Zeta

Pre-Professional Night Business Meeting

On November 6th, 2014 our chapter invited 5 distinguished professionals in their fields to come and speak to our members about professional programs in the agriculture industry. It was a wonderful evening that inspired many of our members to pursue professional careers in the agriculture industry. Of the 5 speakers, 3 were Alpha Zeta alumni. Our speakers included a veterinary pathologist, agriculture lawyer and economist, meat scientist, distinguished cattle producer, animal nutritionist and environmentalist focused on research, and a crop scientist. It was an inspiring evening and we look forward to putting on this event again in the near future!
