FSHN Homecoming

The 2018 Homecoming activities hosted by the Department of Food Science and Human Nutrition will take place Thursday, October 25, through Saturday, October 27.

Celebration Banquet

An event to celebrate accomplishments achieved by FSHN Department faculty, staff, students and alumni during the past year. Three FSHN alumni - Milagros Hojilla-Evangelista ('90, PhD food technology), Julie Miller Jones ('68, BS home economics - food science), Barb Struempler ('81, MS food and nutrition; '84, PhD food and nutrition) - will receive the FSHN Alumni Impact Award during the banquet. We will also honor the memory of Chris Fedler, an assistant scientist in the department who passed away in April 2018.

Young Alumni Club meeting

Club members will join the FSHN External Advisory Council for lunch at noon in the Joan Bice Underwood Tearoom, then will discuss department recruitment efforts, and make cheese. The meeting will conclude with a reception attended by FSHN faculty, staff and students.
