Faculty and Student Holiday Donuts and Cider

Donuts and Cider


During the last week of classes, it has become tradition that faculty and staff make homemade donuts and cider for graduating seniors and wish Animal Sciences students best wishes on final exams.

More than 500 donuts and many gallons of cider were served.
