Lincoln, Neb. —The College of Agricultural Sciences and Natural Resources at the University of Nebraska is set to celebrate its 23rd annual CASNR week from April 17-21, 2023. The week-long event aims to recognize and celebrate the achievements of CASNR students, faculty, staff, and alumni.
“CASNR Week is an annual event where we celebrate the College of Agricultural Sciences and Natural Resources and bring together our amazing community, said Clare Hornung, CASNR recruitment specialist.
"There are activities the whole week including events from IANR Global, our CASNR Ice Cream Social, CASNR Community Night, and more. We are so happy to be commemorating the 150th anniversary of CASNR this academic year, so that’s even more reason to come together and remember all our accomplishments and look forward to all the innovations we are creating for the future.”
