Jake Hlas became involved in several campus organizations early on in his Iowa State career. He offers the following advice to fellow students: “In the end, your college experience is entirely what you make of it. Be intentional with your time and use the standard of excellence set by those who came before to build the best version of yourself far beyond the end of your four years.”
Innovation in Action
CropsTV is a new educational program that will replace the Integrated Crop Management Conference and the Crop Advantage Series, originally scheduled for December and January. The 10-week program launches Dec. 1, 2020, and will virtually deliver crop production information directly to farmers and agribusinesses. Live webinars will allow interaction with specialists, presenters and panelists. On-demand viewing of topics will allow schedule flexibility. Participants can select from more than 30 topics from Iowa State University faculty and staff as well as invited guest presenters.
