President’s Message

Tom Janczewski, WALSAA President

Greetings Fellow Alumni!

By the time this issue arrives in your mailbox, the Spring semester will be in the rear view mirror and we will be planning for an exciting 2016-17 academic year.

Congratulations to our newest alumni! I enjoyed meeting many of them at WALSAA’s pre-commencement gathering and look forward to welcoming them into the fold as WALSAA members. If you know any new graduates make sure encourage them to join WALSAA. Better yet, buy them a WALSAA membership.  Is there any better graduation gift than a WALSAA lifetime membership?

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
