Purdue Animal Sciences Preview Days
Preview Days for Spring 2019
Congratulations on being admitted to Purdue University and the Department of Animal Sciences! We have arranged 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. You may only attend one Preview Day.
Preview Days will be held on the following four Saturdays: February 9, February 23, March 2, and March 23; April 27 is held as a rain date. There will be light refreshments available starting at 8:15 AM and the program will end around 2:00 PM. We will host you for lunch at one of Purdue's dining courts.
Each date is limited to 24 families (the admitted student and two guests). If the date is full, you may either register on the wait list or select another date. If you register for a waiting list, we will contact you if space opens up. If your plans change and you cannot make a scheduled visit, please contact Dr. Paul Ebner immediately.
Again, congratulations on being admitted to Purdue, and we look forward to seeing you. If you have questions prior to your visit, please contact Dr. Paul Ebner (firstname.lastname@example.org) or 765-494-4820.
