Applications for the Coaly Honors Society for Leadership in the College of Agricultural Sciences are available now.

The Penn State Coaly Society is an honor society for students who exemplify leadership excellence in extracurricular activities within the College of Agricultural Sciences. Coaly Society activities include conducting the Guldin Speaking Contest and selecting our college's Outstanding Senior.

We are looking for students who are dedicated to the College of Agricultural Sciences and are actively involved in college organizations. Selection of new Coaly Society members is based on leadership positions (offices or committee chairs) in Ag Hill activities. Other activities such as judging teams are also considered. You must be a member of at least one club sponsored by the College of Agricultural Sciences to be eligible, and you must have completed one full semester at the University Park campus. Freshmen are not eligible for membership. Please be thorough in completing the application since these are the only criteria used in selecting candidates. Feel free to use additional paper if necessary and be concise in your essay. Although applicants must have an overall grade point average of 2.5 or higher, the primary criterion used for selection is leadership in College of Agricultural Sciences student clubs.

Applications are due in 101 Ag Administration on Monday April 17th, by 4:30 p.m. The applications must be either typed on the original form or retyped. Computer submissions are acceptable. All applicants will be notified of their acceptance status by email. Please send any and all questions to George Dietrich at
