44th Annual AutumnFest Saturday, November 9, 2019

AutumnFest: The college’s official reunion!

Join friends, family and fellow Spartans for a day filled with food, fun and MSU football! Reconnect with other alumni, faculty and staff while enjoying great food and learning about your department’s current research, teaching and outreach!

You’ll see and hear how students, faculty members and alumni of the MSU College of Agriculture and Natural Resources (CANR) are addressing current and emerging issues related to food, energy and the environment.

AutumnFest is continuing to change this year to give you more time to chat with old friends, network with supporters from Michigan’s agricultural and natural resources industries, and engage in activities throughout the pavilion. Like last year, there will not be a raffle or auction, however we ask that you consider making a gift to the MSU fund of your choice and become a member of the Spartan Loyal annual giving program.
