UNL kicks off yearlong celebration of two agriculture institutions
LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) – The University of Nebraska-Lincoln began a yearlong celebration on Thursday of two of its East Campus institutions.
Dozens of students and staff showed up for fun and food to kick off what UNL is calling the Celebration of Innovation.
It marks the 150th birthday of the College of Agricultural Sciences and Natural Resources and the 50th birthday Institute of Agriculture and Natural Resources.
In part, Thursday’s event was a way to get students back together after the pandemic and show the community, according to Meg Kester of the ag college.
“But it’s also really important that we show our alums, our faculty members, our constituents in the state of Nebraska what we are doing and what we have accomplished and that we are very proud of those things,” Kester said.
More festivities will be taking place over the next year.
