Fall semester has begun, and with it comes our favorite time of the year—Homecoming! Homecoming is the perfect opportunity to reconnect with old friends, network with members of the CFANS community, and cheer on the Gophers. This year, CFANS will be hosting a CFANS Sampler and Homecoming Parade Party!

The CFANS community is welcome to enjoy complimentary BBQ sandwiches, a cash bar, yard games, and premium viewing of the parade. We'll be on the front lawn of Folwell Hall, where you can catch up with CFANS staff, faculty, friends and alumni. Please register by Friday, September 22

The event will feature food samples and interactive displays on new research from College departments, including, Minnesota-variety apples, cheese and ice cream, and Kernza products. Attendees will have the opportunity to be entered into a drawing to win special prizes!

BBQ sandwiches will be provided and include vegetarian options — available while supplies last. Beverages are available for purchase at our cash bar. Walk-in registration will be available, however we ask that you register in advance if possible. Hosted by the CFANS Alumni Society, Undergraduate Student Board, Graduate Student Board, and Postdoc Board.
