Animal Sciences Graduate Club

The Animal Sciences Graduate Club consists of current graduate students in the Department and serves as a networking opportunity and a social environment among graduate students. The Graduate Club provides an opportunity for students to learn about research others are conducting and to create discussions about projects and their experimental designs or statistical analysis. Most importantly, it provides opportunities to socialize — whether it's a BBQ at lunch or a Twin's game after work. Graduate students conduct tours of the animal barns on campus to generate funds for social activities.

Animal Facilities Tours

The Animal Sciences Graduate Club provides tours of the animal barns on campus for interested parties. Please submit tour requests and direct questions to the Barn Tour Coordinator, Glenda Pereira (gmpereir@umn.edu).
