CFAES staff road trip time!
With locations in every part of the state, CFAES is massive…and kind of hard to get to know. Ever wondered what goes on at other CFAES locations? Now is your chance to find out. It’s time for a ROAD TRIP! This year the CFAES Staff Advisory Council is sponsoring a road trip to the OSU Wooster Campus on August 2!
Deadline to register is 7-25-2017, but if sign up is as it has been in the past, it will be filled prior to that date. Please note there is not a vegetarian option for lunch. We have spots for 30 to 32 staff members to attend.
Are you looking to have a little more adventure on your lunch break, but aren’t sure where to start? Have you been wanting to tap into your creative side, but don’t have the supplies to do so? Have no fear, the Wooster campus has some great programs coming up to help you move, create, think, feel and find this summer! This five week summer challenge not only helps you accomplish your goals but can help you earn up to 500 YP4H points by participating in one or all five of the weekly challenges.
