Every school year, the department looks forward to students returning to campus to start back up one of their favorite traditions, the popcorn and doughnut stand in agronomy hall.
The Agronomy Club at Iowa State sets up a stand across from the commons to sell popcorn and doughnuts every Friday, starting early in the morning.
Junior in agronomy Ben Kolbe is currently the sales co-chair alongside Tyler Simons. “Before being co-chair I worked the stand every Friday,” Kolbe said. “My favorite part of working the shift is getting to see and talk with students and faculty that I might not get to see otherwise because they aren’t in any of my classes.”
Kolbe also explained that all of the funds from the popcorn and doughnut stand go directly back to the club, supporting activities such as Experience Agronomy and SASES.
