Another semester has come to a close! This time of year allows me to reflect on how incredible CAFNR students truly are. From participating in unique internships to working on innovative research, our students have spent another semester excelling inside and outside of the classroom. I want to send a special congratulations to our December graduates as well! Commencement is such a rewarding experience, for students and faculty alike. Read about a few of our graduates below in the Senior Spotlight section.
