Celebrating Giant Leaps in agriculture at the Ag Alumni Fish Fry

150 Giant Leaps

From Homecoming 2018 to Homecoming 2019, Purdue University marks its sesquicentennial by commemorating 150 Years of Giant Leaps. Purdue and the College of Agriculture will host a variety of events including many focused on four topics: a sustainable economy and planet, health and longevity, space exploration, and artificial intelligence. Purdue will display its impact in these fields over the past century and a half while discussing the giant leaps Boilermakers can make in the next 150 years.

The College of Agriculture will also celebrate the sesquicentennial at annual and unique events through-out the year, including the Purdue Ag Alumni Fish Fry on February 2 and Spring Fest on April 6 and 7.

To celebrate the college’s giant leaps at the 2019 Ag Alumni Fish Fry, agriculture journalist Max Armstrong will moderate a panel featuring Dean Karen Plaut and former deans Bob Thompson, Vic Lechtenberg, Randy Woodson and Jay Akridge. They will celebrate the legacy of Purdue Agriculture while looking ahead to how the college can make an impact in the global challenges we face in the next 150 years.
