News: 2017 First Year Research Experience

First Year Experience (FYRE) at the U of S
A showcase of innovative ideas from future agrologists

On Monday, December 4th the College of Agriculture and Bioresources hosted their annual FYRE Poster Competition. Over 400 students participated in an event that fosters research-based learning.

A big thank you goes out to Lyse Boisvert, PAg (pictured right) for attending as SIA's representative on the 14 person judging panel.

The judges did not have an easy job as the field of research was incredibly diverse and the commitment to research was exceptional. There were nine winners who each received a $200 tuition credit, sponsored by SIA.
