Join NDSU supporters, faculty/staff, alumni, and friends to celebrate a monumental moment in NDSU agriculture history. 

This exciting occasion will be a testament to the University’s commitment to agricultural education, research, and innovation. These events, held during AgTech Week, will provide an up-close and personal look at what it means to be a land-grant institution and will highlight the ways that the University’s innovation, research, education, and experiences are truly for the land and its people.
