Alpha Tau Alpha

The Eta Chapter of the Alpha Tau Alpha is Penn State's chapter of the National Professional Honorary for Agricultural Education.  The purpose of this organization is to promote the highest standards of agricultural education and a more intimate acquaintance and closer relationship with individuals who have chosen a major in agricultural education or extension education.  By studying the life, preparation, and personality of great educators, by a better understanding of various aspects of the great vocations in agriculture, and life of the people engaged therein, members aspire to become such agricultural educators as shall wisely and sufficiently lead those who have chosen the vocation of agriculture, into fuller lives of success and happiness.  Members seek to find and enjoy the fellowship of individuals of high scholarship, of true teaching ideals, and of sincere desire to serve in agricultural leadership. 

Membership is limited to those students who have a strong interest in agricultural education and are at least sophomore status at the University Park campus with a cumulative grade point average of 3.0 or higher on a 4.0 scale.

We are associated with the TeachAg! Society.
