Visit Day

2014 Dairy Science Fall Visit Day

Register for the upcoming Visit Day on October 31st.

The University of Wisconsin-Madison’s Department of Dairy Science invites prospective students and their parents to visit campus on Friday, October 31, 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., to explore what the program has to offer. High school seniors and transfer students are encouraged to attend.

Those attending will get a firsthand look at one of the world’s leading dairy science departments as they tour the UW-Madison campus and Dairy Cattle Center, meet faculty, participate in hands-on workshops and learn about the wide variety of learning opportunities available to dairy science majors. Current students and alumni will be on hand to answer questions and share their experiences.

The UW-Madison undergrad dairy science program emphasizes a combination of cutting-edge, science-based knowledge and hands-on experience. Award-winning research and extension faculty teach more than 20 undergraduate courses covering nutrition, reproduction, mammary physiology, genetics and other aspects of dairy management.  On-campus, state-of-the art dairy facilities enhance the learning experience.

For UW-Madison admission eligibility, it is recommended that seniors rank in the top 25 percent of their high school class. Transfer students must have completed at least 24 semester hours of college–level work. Most transfer students have a GPA of at least a 3.0 on a 4.0 scale.

To attend the Dairy Science Visit Day, please register on-line by Oct. 27 at dysci.wisc.edu/visitday/.  For more information, contact Cathy Rook at (608) 263-3308 or rook@wisc.edu.
