Agriculture Undergraduate Society and more memories

I was elected as the first female Agriculture Undergraduate Society (Aggie) President in 1981, a very memorable time. I also had three special visits to the Faculty Club; by Professor Jacob Biely who invited students working at the UBC Poultry Farm to lunch, by Professor Beryl March who would invite the top students in her nutrition class to lunch, and once for a special scholarship presentation dinner. And I just finished an excellent distance education course in Soil Science, 30+ years later.
