Beet Week
Celebrating our Philanthropic Roots

April 29-May 2, 2019

Beet Week brings together the Carey community to celebrate graduating students’ transition to alumni status and to honor the philanthropic legacy of William P. Carey.

The Office of Development and Alumni Relations invites Carey students, faculty, and staff to a weeklong celebration, featuring exciting events, Carey apparel, trivia, prizes, food, and fun. Students will not only better understand the history behind the beet but can gain an understanding of how they can carry on the proud legacy of William P. Carey.

 

 

“My favorite part of Beet Week was Carey Fest because it brought together students, staff, and faculty in an environment of excitement.”
