Admitted Students

Preview Days for Spring 2016

Congratulations on being admitted to Purdue University and the Department of Animal Sciences! We have arranged for four Preview Days to help you become more familiar with the department. It is an opportunity for you to ask questions of current students and faculty and hear their thoughts on various aspects of student life at Purdue.

Preview Days will be held on the following four Saturdays: February 27, March 5, April 2, and April 9. There will be light refreshments available starting at 8:30 AM and the program will end around 2:30 PM. We will host you for lunch at one of Purdue's dining courts.

Each date is limited to 20 families (the admitted student and two guests). If the date is full, you may either register to be put on the waiting list or select another date. If you register for a waiting list, we will contact you if space opens up. If you cannot make any of these dates and you would like to arrange an individual visit to the department, please contact Dawn Gulik (dgulik@purdue.edu or 765-494-8007) to arrange a visit. Also, if your plans change and you cannot make a scheduled visit, please contact Dawn.
