Animal & Dairy Sciences to hold virtual and in-person preview days for prospective undergraduates

The University of Wisconsin-Madison’s Department of Animal & Dairy Sciences invites prospective students that are interested in majoring in animal or dairy science to attend a virtual or in person preview day event to explore what the program has to offer. See below for a listing of virtual and in person events and their registration links.

  • April 26th, 2023 @6:30pm to 7:30pm CST: Zoom Presentation and Q&A
  • May 5th, 2023 @2:30pm-4:30pm CST: In Person Animal & Dairy Campus Tour

Admitted and prospective students and their families can gain a firsthand look at one of the world’s leading animal and dairy science programs. Attendees will learn about the curriculum, scholarships and financial aid availability, career options, and extracurricular opportunities that make-up the “Badger Experience” for animal and dairy students. Current students and instructors will be also on hand to answer questions and to talk about their involvement in campus activities.

“Choosing a college to attend is a major life decision. Thoroughly doing one’s research, taking campus visits, and attending virtual recruiting events is the best way to make it an informed choice,” says Kent Weigel, professor and chair of the Department of Animal & Dairy Sciences. “Students that visit us are often amazed by the small-school feel of our ag campus and the extra benefits they get studying at a Big Ten university,” states Weigel.
