MSU CANR to celebrate homecoming with Virtual Reunion Week for alumni and friends
Join friends and fellow Spartans online Sept. 21-26, 2020 for a week filled with connections, memories and fun!
This year for AutumnFest, we are celebrating virtually — and what better time to do that than during MSU's virtual Homecoming Week!
Normally we would be getting ready to come together for the 45th annual AutumnFest reunion later in the fall, but things look a little different in 2020. This year, we are creating new memories and new traditions for the future and reaching CANR Spartans across the world with a CANR Virtual Reunion Week.
Join friends and fellow Spartans online for a week filled with connections, memories and fun! Even though we aren't together on campus, you can still reconnect with alumni, faculty and staff, and find out what your department is doing now — all online, from the comfort of your home or wherever you may be.

SUPPORT CANR ALUMNI PROGRAMS
Each year we ask alumni and friends to make a gift to support CANR Alumni Association programs, such as student club grants and student scholarships. This year, consider making a gift in the amount you would have spent on your AutumnFest registration fees or by becoming Spartan Loyal or higher. Support CANR Alumni Association programs now.

During the week be sure to follow @CANRatMSU on social media to:
- Check in with student organizations you would have seen at AutumnFest.
- Get highlights on this year’s CANR Alumni Scholarship recipients.
