President’s Message

Bryan Renk, WALSAA President

In the June issue of the WALSAA Express you will see us recognizing many accomplishments and thanking some very deserving people. First of all; thank you to WALSAA annual and lifetime members, contributors, sponsors and the individuals and companies that both donate to our silent auction and purchase items at Fire-Up. Without your support we would be a lesser organization and could not do some of the activities WALSAA does throughout the year.

Donate to WALSAA


WALSAA (Wisconsin Agricultural and Life Sciences Alumni Association) is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization that supports the connection of students, faculty and alumni to the University of Wisconsin's College of Agricultural and Life Sciences (known to many of us as CALS). Established in 1972, WALSAA has embarked on a remarkable journey of service and fellowship with alumni and friends of CALS. Noted by Roger Biddick, first WALSAA president at the organizations' first meeting, "As alumni we can act more effectively than any single group to rebuild the image of greatness that this college so justly deserves and at the same time enjoy the fellowship of working together."

Supporting Outstanding Students and Great Advisors

WALSAA supports numerous CALS students annually through the Outstanding Sophomore Award Scholarships, Farm and Industry Short Course awards, major funding for a student leadership retreat and other professional development opportunities. To recognize faculty and staff advisors, WALSAA developed and endowed the WALSAA Advising Award. Established in 1997, the award is given to a member of the CALS faculty for exceptional student advising service. >>more
