Enter Now | CNR Brown Bag Faculty Lunch Lottery

Students agree - CNR's Brown Bag Faculty Lunches are awesome!

This series is intended to help facilitate interactions between undergraduates and faculty outside of the classroom. What do faculty members do when they're not teaching? How did they get to where they are today? What are their hobbies and interests? How did they get involved in their research?

We are excited to have Associate Professor Sofia Berto Villas-Boas from the Department of Agricultural and Resource Economics host this event on Thursday, November 14, from 12-1pm.

Professor Villas-Boas' research interests include industrial organization, consumer behavior, food policy, and environmental regulation. This brown bag discussion will be great for students wanting to learn more about the field of environmental economics, agriculture, and policy as a whole.

We will select 12 students using a lottery system to join Professor Villas-Boas for the brown bag lunch. To enter, just complete this form (http://goo.gl/qeOSRL) before Wednesday, November 6th, at 5pm. Winners will be notified via email on Thursday, November 7th. We invite all undergraduate students in CNR to sign-up to participate and get to know our faculty better.

Please note, “brown bag lunch” means you bring your own lunch – dessert is on us though!
