Undergraduate Advising

We value undergraduate advising and realize that a strong connection with our faculty members is important and can be a great resource in the future. 

As an undergraduate, you will be advised by Lauren Redman during your freshmen and sophomore years. After that point, you will be assigned a faculty advisor.  Our curriculum will expose you to over half of our faculty members in the first two years.  You will have a great idea of who you want your advisor to be, and we definitely give you input in the advisor assignment process!

Students who establish strong relationships with their advisors get more out of their Animal Sciences experience. For example, faculty advisors can direct you to potential research opportunities and provide valuable career advice. Information on our advisors is provided below.

If you are a current student at the University of Illinois in a different major, and are interested in switching into Animal Sciences, please contact Lauren Redman directly.
