Free doughnuts, free coffee, free T-shirts, and free food are probably among the most popular things a college student can hope for in life, and next week, they’ll all be available at the Farmer School of Business during Farmer Week.

Running Monday through Thursday, Farmer Week is “a celebration of all things Farmer,” Maddie Kruger, vice president of the Business Student Advisory Council said. “It’s an event to celebrate all of the hard work that Farmer students put in, so we celebrate everyone in Farmer and everything that they’ve done through the year.”

Each day of Farmer Week has several events:

  • Monday: Free coffee and doughnuts at 9:30 a.m. in the Commons
  • Tuesday: Free coffee and doughnuts at 9:30 a.m. and T-shirts at 10 a.m. in the Commons
  • Wednesday: Free coffee and doughnuts at 9:30 a.m. in the Commons, Global activity from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.
  • Thursday: Farmer apparel trunk show from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., KPMG picnic on the Farmer School front lawn (weather permitting) from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., Higgin Kim speaker at 6 p.m.

Another event taking place each day is the Pulsera Project. “The Pulsera Project is a service initiative where we will be selling bracelets for $5 cash throughout the week. The bracelets are made by women in third-world, developing countries and 100% of the money goes back to these artists,” Kruger explained.

While this is a week celebrating both Farmer and its students, we also want to give back,” Kruger said. “It is a great cause, and it goes along with our “It’s a Small (Business) World” theme!”
