CAFNR Week 2016 Steering Committee applications due Monday, Feb. 15

CAFNR Week 2016 is months away, but applications for the 2016 CAFNR Week Steering Interviews for the committee members will be later in the month.

“Being on the committee was a great experience for me,” Robyn Eschenbrenner, co-director of the steering committee said. “It’s a fun week when CAFNR students get to come together and celebrate their college!”

Committee members will start meeting as soon as March 1 to plan the big week.

With CAFNR Week being planned one hundred percent by CAFNR students, committee members have the opportunity to plan this event for hundreds of their fellow students.

“This is my second year on the committee and my first year as one of the directors,” Eschenbrenner said. “We are extremely excited to choose our committee members and get to planning!”

CAFNR Week is a long-standing tradition in the College of Agriculture, Food and Natural Resources at MU.

There are many events that take place during CAFNR Week, such as the alumni bonfire, comedy and trivia nights, a concert and more. This year the committee hopes to add an agriculture awareness day on campus during the week.

They hope to incorporate all of CAFNR in the celebration this year by bringing in more students from Sports Management, Biochemistry, Hospitality Management and Parks, Recreation and Tourism.

“We want to share our passion for agriculture with the rest of Mizzou and with students who do not understand what we stand for,” Eschenbrenner said.

Applications are to be submitted to; MUCAFNRweek@gmail.com
