Purdue Animal Sciences Preview Days

 

​Purdue Animal Sciences Preview Days
For Admitted Students that have Committed to Purdue

Preview Days for Spring 2013 are CLOSED

Preview Days for students who have already committed to attending Purdue will be held March 23. The session begins at 9:30 AM and will end around noon.

Students (and parents) who have committed to the Department of Animal Sciences are invited to visit the department to become more familiar with us. Current students will visit with you to give you a student's perspective of the department and University as a whole.

Students interested in pre-veterinary medicine have the option to tour the School of Veterinary Medicine and visit with current vet students. Students interested in other options have the opportunity to tour the Department of Animal Sciences main campus.

Register for a visit

If this date is not convenient to you, please register here to give us your name and contact information. If there are enough interested families, we will schedule another Preview day or contact you about scheduling an individual visit.

If your plans change and you cannot make a scheduled visit, please contact Dawn Gulik (dstaub@purdue.edu or 765-494-8007).
