The tradition of Bean Feed started in 1938 as a small gathering of students and faculty, over beans and wieners, to celebrate the beginning of the academic year. Now in its 82nd year, Bean Feed has grown into a formal gala where several hundred students, families, industry partners, donors, faculty, staff and friends gather to recognize scholarship recipients and outstanding faculty and staff.

In 2020, we are celebrating our student, faculty and staff award winners online! Congratulations on your accomplishments! You are on your way to making the world a better place for future generations.

Thank you to our generous donors! With your support, the College of Agriculture and Bioresources awarded $1,492,082 in scholarships, bursaries and other awards in 2020.
