'CAAS Week' is September 16-20
Thursday, Sep. 12, 2013
The College of Agriculture and Applied Sciences Week, or CAAS Week, is Monday, Sept. 16 through Friday, Sept. 20.
Formerly known as Ag Week, this year’s events focus on the week’s theme of “Get to Know CAAS” and feature each department within the college.
A special event this year is a country swing dancing fundraiser for Dallin Wengert, a CAAS student seriously injured in a car accident in May. Still recovering from his injuries, all proceeds from the event will benefit Dallin and his wife, Amy. The public is invited to attend this event.
