We often say here at the University of Missouri College of Agriculture, Food and Natural Resources that what our students get is not just a degree – it’s the entire CAFNR experience.
What do we mean by “the CAFNR Experience?”
It’s everything that we offer our students here at CAFNR:
- Award-winning advisors and teachers
- Research opportunities with internationally renowned scientists
- Study abroad options tailored to degree programs and in more than a dozen countries
- Career expos bringing nearly 200 employers to campus each year
- Student Development Plan app tailored to CAFNR students to ensure academic and career preparedness
- Hands-on learning experiences, including
- Student-run retail (floral shop, ice cream shop, meat market)
- Competitive judging teams
- Equine center and other agricultural research centers
- Research labs
- Policy centers
When you factor in that we also give out more than $1.3 million each year in scholarships and 87% of eligible applicants receive a CAFNR scholarship – you can see the CAFNR Experience is an incredible value!
