AGRICULTURE CENTENARY CELEBRATIONS


11 February 2010

Happy Agriculture Centenary!

Join us throughout 2010 to celebrate 100 years of world-changing Agriculture!

There are events for alumni and friends across the decades including public lectures, cocktail / networking reception, lunches, Open Days, and research forums.

For many of you your university experiences were some of the best years of your life. You met so many people. Some remained friends for life.

Make the journey back to your alma mater, and take another look at where we are now, and where we came from.

100 Years. 100 Stories.

Alumni and friends - and of course your family - are invited to celebrate 100 years of the Faculty of Agriculture, Food and Natural Resources.

Reconnect with your classmates and teachers, and rediscover your University.

Show your family what you did at university at Special Open Days (Camperdown, Narrabri and Camden).
