Purdue Animal Sciences Preview Days

 

​Purdue Animal Sciences Preview Days
For Admitted Students that are Still Undecided

Preview Days for Spring 2013 are CLOSED

Preview Days for Undecided students will be held February 2, February 23, and March 2. The session starts at 9:30 AM and will end around 3:30 PM.

Students (and their parents) who have been accepted by Purdue, but are still undecided, are invited to visit the Department to become more familiar with us from a student's perspective. 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.

If these dates are not convenient for you, you may arrange an individual visit. Please contact Dawn Gulik (dstaub@purdue.edu or 765-494-8007) to arrange a visit. If your plans change and you cannot make a scheduled visit, please contact Dawn.

Each day is limited to 12 prospective students bringing 2 parents/guardians with them.
