How joining this society could help you survive four years studying Ag Science

Any one that has ever studied in UCD know the 'Ags' are renowned for their active social life.

But it's not all fun and games and adjusting to the multiple dialects of the country can be a challenge.

At the start, you may feel like you’ll need a translator, but fortunately “pints?” sounds the same in all accents. Luckily, most of the school are in the same boat and know little or no one when starting in UCD.

As a fourth year Ag Science student and a member of the AgSoc committee I’m a strong advocate of joining/supporting society.

Whether you’re looking for like-minded people to discuss the price of beef, drinking buddy or even a boyfriend/girlfriend, AgSoc is for you. From County Colours night, to Ags Got Talent, to our annual milk race, there’s plenty of opportunity to meet your match!

Last year AgSoc raised €50,000 and this year the society is back in full swing and already on the road for another success story this academic year.

Leading the way is Galway man, Peter Thomas Keaveney, this years’ auditor and with him leading the charge, AgSoc has chosen to support Pieta House and 22Q11.2 Ireland. Two charities that are close to the hearts of many Ags, past and present.

Anyone who's not in Ag can still contribute through the society's gofundme page.
