Ag Alumni Society seeking active volunteers

Posted: March 16, 2016

The Society is looking for active alumni volunteers to join a committee. Giving back to your Alma Mater can mean a variety of things -- speaking in a class, engaging alumni or collaborating with board members to plan alumni and student events. Our annual committee meeting is April 30, 2016 and includes a working lunch.

To attend the committee meeting scheduled for April 30 at the Pegula Ice Arena, please contact the Alumni Relations Office at
