Advice I have for incoming students is to put yourself outside of your comfort zone. Purdue has so many opportunities for you to discover, so be sure not to hold yourself back because you fear the unknown. College is such a wonderful time to find new experiences, friendships, and opportunities.Favorite part:
My favorite aspect of the Purdue ANSC department is the community the faculty and staff have established with students. Not only does our community make a big campus like Purdue feel smaller but also makes it challenging not to become an involved student!
