All proceeds help CALS Student Association (CALSSA) to engage the University and local communities. We host community events such as CALS Day for Kids, where we bring hundreds of local area elementary school kids to campus and teach them about the scientific technologies and agricultural traditions of Wisconsin. In addition to outreach within the Madison area community, CALSSA fosters leadership in the UW community through an annual leadership retreat. Furthermore, CALSSA provides excellent networking opportunities for students by acting as a liaison between current students and alumni. This outlet gives undergraduates a voice in the development of new curricula and power over their own education.
