In October the Office of International and Border Programs was honored to meet Mr. Mario Allegri, our distinguished international alumnus from last year (he couldn’t make it last year, but did come this year). It was a pleasure to host him and his lovely wife, Giannina, on campus.
Mario Allegri, who graduated in 1973, is the International Distinguished Alumnus. Allegri graduated with a master’s degree in range ecology from the College of Agriculture, Consumer and Environmental Sciences. Allegri works for the National Agricultural Research Institute in Uruguay. He has kept in close contact with NMSU as a researcher in pastures and rangelands since his graduation. Also, he has encouraged many researchers in Uruguay to enroll at NMSU.
