History
The roots of the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences go back to 1858 when Iowa established the State Agricultural College and Model Farm. It officially opened in 1869 as the first coed land-grant in the nation. That was among many college “firsts,” including the first courses in forestry, dairying and bacteriology in the nation.

Abstract

Agriculture degrees are hot, and enrollment in community colleges' agriculture programs has soared in recent years. For students like Katie Yule, who start at Kirkwood Community College and want to earn a four-year degree at Iowa State University, the collaborative spirit among student services staff at both institutions makes the transfer process as seamless as possible. "My Kirkwood adviser helped lay out all my options and explained what classes would transfer," says Yule, a senior from Packwood who is majoring in agricultural studies at Iowa State. "It was a very smooth transition."
