Dr. Collins with sign
After years of enduring floods and isolation that can only come from working in the basement of a former bomb shelter, the Division of Plant Sciences offices have moved to a new location (above ground) in the Agriculture Laboratory Building. Here Dr. Mike Collins shows off their new sign. The Agriculture Laboratory Building was constructed in 1949 as a free standing building and originally contained MU’s soils labs. In 1961 it was joined to the Agriculture Building. The basement of the Agriculture Building, where Plant Sciences used to have its offices, was the designated campus fallout shelter during much of the Cold War.
CAFNR students Thomas Pekkala, Tyler Schwader, Brett Waddell, Rachel Thornton, Jessica Kueffer, Austin Thiel, Thomas Stillman and Amy Zuroweste pose in front of The Bath House Building, a historic building in Rotorua, New Zealand. The study abroad program was held over winter break; 24 students made the trip, focused around "Intro to Agriculture and Natural Resources."
