The College of Agricultural Sciences and Natural Resources at the University of Nebraska–Lincoln has designated April 8-15 as CASNR Week. The 17th annual event celebrates the successes of all CASNR students, faculty, staff and alumni.

The CASNR Week Program Council, a student organization, has planned several events during the week to showcase and honor the college. According to Amanda Clymer, a senior agricultural economics major and co-president of the organization, the team has been making plans for CASNR Week since last fall.

“This week of celebration is planned, organized and executed by CASNR students,” Clymer said. “The events are really meant to bring everyone together to celebrate what makes this college so special.”

CASNR Week starts with a 5K Fun Run beginning at 9 a.m. April 8 on the East Campus Mall. No preregistration is required to participate. For event information and a course map, click here.

The CASNR Week Awards Banquet is April 9 at the Nebraska Union. In addition to awards presented to current students, faculty and staff, the CASNR Alumni Association will also honor distinguished alumni.

A blood drive with the Nebraska Community Blood Bank, free lunch at the East Union and a community night involving elementary schools near East Campus are other events scheduled for the week. CASNR Week will conclude with the 59th annual University of Nebraska-Lincoln Rodeo April 14-15 at the Lancaster Event Center.
