Alumni Fish Fry!On Saturday, September 22, the Cook Alumni Association held its annual Fish Fry. This is traditionally an event for alumni to come back and network, and see what has been going on around campus since they graduated. The event was held at the Log Cabin slightly off campus, in the Rutgers Gardens. Alumni of all ages, from Class of 1975 to Class of 2012 showed up to enjoy music, a pasta buffet, all the kalamari and shrimp you can eat.
This year, as tradition, the graduating seniors of the Class of 2013 were invited to attend, so begin to get to know their alumni and know that the alumni association is there for them when they graduate. Alpha Zeta seniors showed up to the event to meet Cook Alumni as well as Alpha Zeta Alumni. Pat Zafian, one of the heads of the Alumni Association, introduced the seniors to those who had graduated in their fields years ago.
The animal science majors were introduced to real veterinarians and given advice on how to apply and what to do when they got there. They were also offered a tour of a local veterinary office. Even those who did not want to follow the main path set out by their majors were introduced to those who had done something different with their careers. Near the end of the event, door prizes were given out, including Cook College Alumni liscense plate covers, key chains, and other regalia. They even gave out an embroidered tapestry of Passion Puddle, one of the iconic landmarks on campus. The event was a huge success and the graduating seniors of 2012 are looking forward to joining the alumni community.
