Activities abound at CASNR Week March 25-31


Students in the College of Agricultural Sciences and Natural Resources have planned a week of events to celebrate excellence and the benefits of agriculture and natural resources in Nebraska.

“Harvesting Excellence” is the theme for the fifth annual CASNR Week March 25-31 on UNL’s East Campus.

“The week features events for students, faculty, staff, alumni, parents and community members,” said Amber Holl of Gibbon, a junior agribusiness major. “It’s a time of celebration.”

Holl, along with Jonie Garwood of Central City, a junior agricultural education major, and Lydee Jo Brown of Oxford, a junior agribusiness major, are the CASNR Week co-chairs.

CASNR Week kicks off with a barbecue at Alpha Gamma Rho fraternity house March 25 and ends with a chili feed at Love Memorial Hall March 31.

A community night for students and parents from Lincoln’s Clinton, Hartley and Huntington elementary schools is planned from 6-8 p.m. March 29. Organizations in the college host games and other activities such as face painting and miniature golf, Holl said.

New to this year’s events is a two-mile fun run/walk March 27. Registration begins at 10:30 a.m. at Burr Hall and the event starts at 11 a.m. A pancake feed follows at the Nebraska East Union. Cost is $3.

Outstanding CASNR students, faculty, alumni and student organizations will be recognized at the “Harvesting Excellence” reception and banquet March 28 at the Nebraska East Union. Featured speaker will be state Sen. Dave Landis. The reception, hosted by Student Involvement, begins at 5 p.m. with the banquet at 6 p.m. Student tickets are free for the first 200 students who reserve them and are then $3.75. Faculty, staff and guests can reserve tickets for $10.50 each. Tickets can be reserved at the Nebraska East Union or at 103 Agricultural Hall.

Unless otherwise noted, all events are free and open to the public.
