Iowa State University students will have the opportunity to compete in an international crops competition. Students will gain international experience, as well as develop their knowledge of crops grown around the world, specifically Australia. The Australian Universities Crops Competition (AUCC) began in 2012 as a competition to test students’ knowledge of practical agronomy. The competition consists of exercises focused on developing students agronomic and business skills, while letting them interact with industry representatives.

Important Note Regarding Missing classes:
Please note that participation on some travel courses require you will be gone from campus for some school days. The College of Agriculture & Life Sciences tries to minimize the number of days missed for this purpose, but in some events, the inflexibility of the travel schedule prevents us from working completely within our breaks. Should you choose to enroll in a travel course that requires missing some class(es) on campus, you will need to contact your instructor directly to inquire whether or not arrangements can be made to make up this class work and/or exams. The CALS Study Abroad office can provide you with a letter explaining the dates of the trip. However, it is your responsibility to contact the instructor to determine the potential impact on your grade before signing up for a Study Abroad program. The instructor is responsible for determining the impact of any absence from class.
