Admitted Students

Preview Days for Spring 2015

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 7, February 21, March 7, and March 28. 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 the Ford Dining Court on two of the Preview Days and at a local restaurant on the other two Preview Days (see the registration site for details). The different lunch venues will provide those of you that have not eaten at a Dining Court the opportunity to experience the dining courts, and the local restaurant will provide an opportunity to experience the campus town atmosphere.

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.
