About the donors:

Since retiring in 2002, Norlin Benevenga has been active on campus as the chair of the CALS animal Care and Use Committee and also the All Campus Animal Care and Use Panel. In addition to chairing the animal care committees, Mr. Benevenga has also developed an animal enrichment device that can be used with laboratory rats and mice.  It is called the Ratloft and a web page designed by his daughter can be found at Research Animal Welfare Equipment, LLC. Mr. Benevenga is glad to have the good fortune to come to campus each day and have the chance to work with both graduate students and undergraduate students who wish to get a start in hands-on-research.
