Admitted Student Visit Options


Congratulations on being admitted into the Department of Animal Sciences! We believe visiting is one of the best ways to know if our program is the right fit for you and your future career goals. Please consider scheduling a visit with us this spring. 

In-Person Visit Options


In-person visits are a great option for students wanting experience campus and get a feel for what life is like as a student at the University of Illinois. 

Virtual Session with ANSC Advisor


We understand that not every student can make it to campus this spring. If you cannot make it to campus or have questions you would like answered before or after your in-person visit, please consider visiting with us virtually.

Making a decision about where to go to college is difficult. If you have questions about classes, student life, or concerns you would like to discuss, consider scheduling a virtual visit with your advisor to learn more about our program and all of the ways we support our students during their college career. We meet with students on Wednesday and Thursday afternoons, however, if you cannot join us for a scheduled event, please reach out to Katelyn Jones-Hamlow,, to schedule a visit outside of those days. 

Sign up for a virtual visit.
