2017 NREM Recognition Banquet
The NREM Recognition Banquet has its roots in both the Animal Ecology and Forestry programs. The Forestry Department began holding an annual Game Feed in the early 1900s. This Game Feed was potluck style where members of the department would bring food they made of wild game to celebrate the accomplishments of their students. Animal Ecology held an annual Scholarship Recognition Banquet since at least the early 1960s that was designed to recognize annual student accomplishments. The current NREM event blends the traditions of both programs into the formal event that is held today. Undergraduate students, graduate students, and the faculty that impact those students are honored and celebrated. The NREM Recognition Banquet continues to evolve and this year brings many exciting changes and we hope you will join us.
