It's Fish Fry Time!
Saturday, July 16, 2022!
1-5PM, where else?? The Log Cabin Pavillion
Register here!

Alumni from SEBS/Cook/CAES/AG are invited to join the Cook Community Alumni Association for the 2022 Annual Alumni Fish Fry on Saturday, July 16, 2022 from 1-5 pm at the Log Cabin and Pavilion at Rutgers Gardens (112 Ryders Lane, New Brunswick, NJ 08901).

Bring your families, bring your roommates, lab partners, and classmates!

This is an All Alumni Event! Some Class Years have used this as an unofficial reunion gathering for their 5-year cycles. Since we have missed a few Fish Fries due to COVID, Class Years ending in 0, 1, 2, 5, 6, & 7 may want to meet up! Remember, all are welcome...join us and help them celebrate! We provide a beautiful venue and great food!

Retired and current Faculty and Staff...come hang out with former students! We'll provide the fresh seafood, pasta bar and Italian specialties, beer, wine and soft drinks!

The registration deadline is Wednesday, July 13.
