College Celebration

College Celebration

On Friday, October 6, 2017 the College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences will bestow the Awards of Distinction at its 29th annual College Celebration. The event is held each year at harvest time to celebrate the advancement and accomplishments of our college and its impact on agriculture and the environment.

The Award of Distinction is the highest recognition presented by the college to individuals whose contributions and achievements enrich the image and reputation of the college and enhance its ability to provide public service.

Treat yourself to a delightful outing with delicious hors d'oeuvres and excellent wines. The evening culminates with a farmers market where attendees dismantle the "welcome display" and take home a bag packed full of California's freshest produce and grains.
