TIFT CO., GA (WALB) -

While some students spend their spring break with friends at the beach. 

UGA students will spend their time off milking cows. 

Students currently enrolled in the Ag program at UGA Athens, UGA Tifton and UGA Griffin are traveling around the state this week. 

They are getting hands-on experience that the classroom may not be able to offer. 

Students have gotten a chance to tour plantations, ranches, dairy farms and the Chick Fil A test kitchen in Atlanta. 

"They're serious about this. They're here for a reason. They're very serious about getting their education. This is a part of education. A lot of education occurs outside of the classroom," said Dr. Joe West, Assistant Dean. 

"The kinds of agriculture Georgia has to offer is very diverse. This might help you find an internship or a job opportunity. It could lead you in a direction you never thought you wanted to go," said Lissi Carr, UGA Tifton student. 

They will be touring the state through the rest of the week and will end in Athens.
