Thanks to all of those who attended. We had a great event this year with over 315 people in attendance. Book scholarships and many door prizes were given to students attending. The Academic Bowl team was recognized for winning the National Championship for the second year in a row. Sponsors, former faculty, new faculty, and many other special guests were recognized for their support to the Department. Students were presented with information regarding the many opportunities to get involved in student organizations within the Department. Jim Olson, the guest speaker, gave a very interesting and intriguing speech on his 31 years of service in the CIA. Your support to the Agricultural Economics Department is greatly appreciated and we wish you all the best throughout the upcoming year.
