Collegiate FFA at Ohio State ATI enhances the collegiate experience through service and engagement, provides personal and professional development opportunities, encourages students to improve lives of others through fundraising for philanthropic efforts, to create tomorrow’s leaders, and to give students an edge in today's job market. Collegiate FFA makes a positive difference in the lives of students by developing their potential for premier leadership, personal growth and career success.
This chapter is chartered as an Alumni and Supporter Chapter which means that membership is open to all students at Ohio State ATI; previous FFA membership is not required and all are welcome! When existing FFA members and alumni elect to join this chapter, their membership remains with their home chapter. Annual dues are $5 and will be collected via Venmo and the CFFA drop box. Our Venmo is Jennifer-Fischer-140. The drop box is a bright pink box located in the shadow box of our bulletin board in Skou lounge.
Chapter meetings are officer-led, student-run meetings that are held weekly throughout the year. Meeting dates and times are determined by the majority of student availability. Knowing that all students do not have the same availability, members may choose to participate when they are available. Our meetings this year are held via zoom, bi-weekly Monday’s at 6:30 pm. The tentative schedule is listed at the bottom of this page.
