UWP holds 2003 Ag Fest
PLATTEVILLE - Each year the University of Wisconsin-Platteville School of Agriculture holds Ag Fest. On Sept. 9, 15 agricultural clubs and organizations gave presentations at the Alpha Gamma Rho Fraternity house to students who might be interested in an agriculture related club.
Students were welcome to ask questions and meet with present advisors and members of the individual clubs. They were also introduced to their academic advisors.
Dean of the College of Business, Industry, Life Science and Agriculture Duane Ford welcomed students back to campus. UWP alumnus Kelly Gregory-Nabb of Phizer Animal Health was the guest speaker. She encouraged all attendees to get involved in activities on campus.
Ag Fest also featured a hog roast that was free to students. After the meal, students had time for a little recreation with sand volleyball, basketball and horseshoes.
"Ag Fest is a great opportunity for new students to get a chance to meet with agriculture professors and students," said agriculture professor Mike Mee.
