Throughout the year, there are various events that are of interest to CASNR alumni and friends.
CASNR Roundup gives new students their first taste of the Cowboy Pride held by CASNR. During the event, students mingle with alumni, faculty and upper class members to discover how to become involved. All CASNR student organizations use this event as an opportunity to contact the future leaders of their favorite student association. The event is organized by the CASNR Student Council with a meal provided by the CASNR Alumni group.

The access tour is a two-day event scheduled during late spring. In the past the attendees have visited locations such as Braum’s Ice Cream and Dairy in Tuttle, Windmill Farms in Woodward, and the Noble Foundation in Ardmore.
Dinner with Five Cowboys
Dinner with Five Cowboys events are opportunities for five current students to dine with alumni/industry professionals and learn about their career paths, life lessons, and OSU and CASNR experiences. “Dinner with Five Cowboys” events provide the ideal informal, small-group networking opportunity for students. Each event is promoted to all students enrolled in CASNR.
Students apply for the opportunity to join a specific alumnus for dinner, and five students are selected based upon that application process. Alumni interested in hosting and sponsoring students for a “Dinner with Five Cowboys” event, simply need to schedule a date, time and location with the CASNR Student Success Center, complete and submit a brief biographical questionnaire, and prepare to share their experiences, advice and a meal with current students. To schedule your “Dinner with Five Cowboys” call the CASNR Student Success Center at 405-744-9464
