Frizzell Learning & Speaker Series

Established in 2013 thanks to a generous gift in commemoration of the life, accomplishments, and aspirations of Alexandra Frizzell, the Frizzell Family Speaker and Learning Series is a student-organized program of events in agriculture, environment, and health from the perspective of the social sciences.

A young woman whose boundless curiosity about the world fueled audacious learning and strong ties to friends and family alike, Alex exemplified the undergraduate for whom wisdom builds upon intelligence. For her, life knowledge, the inspiration of community, and enhancing the chances of others fueled commitment to learning, as well as joy in life. The goal of the series is therefore to better enable students to interact with thought leaders, relevant alumni, faculty, and locally based advocates to build skills, knowledge, and confidence in relation to the above topics.
