There are four new events this year, according to Karen Jackson, advisor to the CASNR Week Program Council. The Spatterganza Forensic Science Fundraiser and the Engler Spring Lecture will be April 13, the Catherland musical will be April 11 and 13 and the Hospitality, Restaurant and Tourism Management Cookie Cook-Off will be April 11. Jackson said the events added show the bigger cooperation different parts of campus have with the ag department and vice versa.
