ASGSA brings together students involved in a variety of different emphasis areas

The Animal Science Graduate Program is a unique program that focuses on science in a variety of disciplines. Each discipline involved in the program contributes its own genre of applications. Areas involved in the Animal Sciences group include Molecular Biology, Genetics, Animal Nutrition, Biochemistry, Reproductive Physiology and Meat Science. Due to the differences in degree programs of the graduates, it is difficult for us to get together and discuss our research and/or current events.

To avoid unnecessary isolation of our program, we have come together to establish a strong association. This association is called the Animal Science Graduate Program Student Association. This association brings together a group of graduates that otherwise would be separated by degree programs. The association provides an opportunity for students to get together to share thoughts and enjoy social events.

We want you to become part of ASGSA! Feel free to contact any member of our Executive Board; we will do our best to reply as soon as possible.
