Prospective student get a look at one of the world’s leading dairy science departments
The University of Wisconsin–Madison’s Department of Dairy Science invites prospective students and their parents to visit campus on Friday, April 5, 10:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., to explore what the program has to offer.
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. Those attending can also preview the cattle selling that will take place at the Badger Dairy Club’s 19th Badger Invitational Sale on April 6.
“For high school students, spring of their junior year is really when I would recommend they start taking campus visits,” says Kent Weigel, professor and chair of the dairy science department. “Making a college visit and touring the campus can be pivotal in a student’s decision to attend college and what schools they end up applying to.”
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.
