Younger viewers will notice a tremendous difference in the way the campus looked back in the 1930s, '40s & '50s and the way it looked before the new school was built. Notice the large open areas, the Fruit Nursery and Orchard, and the large Poultry Plant, all of which are gone today. Dairy, Poultry, Fruit and Floriculture were the major fields of study during the early years of the Aggie.
