Exploration Days

We have found that students who spend the day with us exploring our programs and discussing possible careers, have a better understanding of where they want to be in the future.

Your time on campus will include: meals, interacting with current students and faculty, and hands on laboratory and field activities.  You will have the option to choose between the following areas of study:

  • Animal Science
  • Food Science
  • Entomology & Wildlife Ecology, Plant & Soil Sciences and Applied Economics and Statistics
