The event begins with an 11:15 a.m. social hour followed by luncheon at noon and an awards program at 1:00 p.m. Participants are also invited to take a tour of the New Holland Pavilions at the Alliant Energy Center later in the day.
This year's reunion will be coordinated by a committee of volunteers from the Wisconsin Agricultural and Life Science Alumni Association.
Registration cost is $25 if received by January 19 and $30 thereafter.

The short course was established on the Madison campus in 1885, predating the College of Agricultural and Life Sciences by four years. The first session ran for 12 weeks and was taught by four professors. Today's program runs 16 weeks with dozens of instructors teaching more than 55 courses.
