Purdue Animal Sciences 2021 Preview Days

Admitted Students​

Preview Days for Spring 2021

Congratulations on being admitted to Purdue University and the Department of Animal Sciences! Purdue Animal Sciences Preview Days are organized and delivered by the Purdue Animal Sciences Ambassadors. We are a group of current undergraduate Animal Sciences students dedicated to creating engagement programs with prospective students, current students, future employers, and any other groups connected with our department and it's mission. With Preview Days, we hope to give you a comprehensive picture of Purdue Animal Sciences, from academics to careers (and everything in between!). Our goal is to provide you with all the information you need to make the best college decision for you and your family. All of our presenters and students are very approachable, and we encourage any and all questions throughout the day.

Each Preview Day is separated into three parts. In Part One, we will introduce you to our group and the Department of Animal Sciences. We will hear from current professors in the department, our academic advisors, and career service coordinators who will talk about everything from academics and what to expect in the classroom to the varied opportunities for graduates from our department. In Part Two, we will hear from current Animal Sciences students who will share the different experiences they have had at Purdue, from study abroad to internships to participating in research labs. We will also take you on a virtual tour of our brand-new building, experiential learning center, and farms. Finally, in Part Three, we will break into parent/guest and student groups to allow any other outstanding questions or concerns and give students a chance to interact with the potential future colleagues.

An agenda for the day is below and we hope to see you soon. In the meantime, if you have any questions, please feel free to contact Dr. Paul Ebner at any time (pebner@purdue.edu) or 765-494-4820.


 **Start times will be adjusted for different time zones.**
