MORRISVILLE, NY—Morrisville State College will participate again in the New York State Fair with exhibits that showcase the college’s academic programs, fish raised in its Aquaculture Center, horses from its equine programs, a drag car built by automotive students and products from its food processing plant, Nelson Farms.

The college will feature an exhibit in the Horticulture Building during the fair which runs Aug. 23 through Sept. 3. Visitors can obtain an array of information about the college at the booth and speak to faculty and staff about the college’s program offerings, athletics and activities. Morrisville State College alumni are encouraged to stop by and access books to find fellow classmates and enjoy some history about the college.

Nelson Farms will also be offering a few samples of its more than 300 products at the booth.

The college will also have a horse exhibit and will display the Morrisville State College drag racing car which was built by automotive technology students.

The college’s School of Agriculture and Natural Resources will also exhibit in the Future Farmers’ of America (FFA) Building. That display will feature a “living stream,” one fish tank filled with trout and another filled with tilapia raised in the college’s Aquaculture Center.

During the fair, equine faculty and students will also be competing with the Morrisville College Foundation’s six-horse Belgian hitch in the equine facility.
