College of Agriculture and Applied Sciences, Day on the Patio

Get those shish kabobs at Day on the Patio Sept. 17, one of the many activities during CAAS week at USU.

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.
