Are you trying to decide which University and Animal Science Program is right for you? Let us help you make an informed decision. The Department of Animal Science welcomes prospective students and/or parents to tour the UConn campus and meet with a faculty member/advisor.
The University of Connecticut hosts UConn Bound Day in April and prospective student Open Houses each year in September and October. These events are designed with one purpose in mind: to provide whatever information you may need about UConn. During the day-long programs, you will have an opportunity to tour UConn's facilities and to visit where students live and learn.
Fill out the form below to arrange a phone call or virtual meeting with an animal science advisor.
*All in person meetings with campus adivsors are temporarily suspended. Please fill out the form below to schedule a phone meeting.*
(Prospective Undergraduate Student Form)
Visitors can speak with a department faculty academic advisor to discuss the animal science program. The information on the form will be submitted to a member of the ANSC staff who will schedule an appointment with the appropriate faculty advisor and contact you via email with the details of your meeting.
If you are interested in speaking to our Polo or Equestrian Team coaches, you can contact them directly to schedule a meeting. Contact information for coaches can be found here.
Once your faculty appointment is scheduled, then if you wish to take a tour of the UConn Storrs campus, contact the UConn Visitor's Center at 860-486-4900 or click here to schedule a tour. There are usually at least two 2-hour tours offered each day.
If you are interested in visiting the animal units on campus, view additional information here. The animal units are open to the public from 10 AM to 4 PM every day.
In addition to taking the campus tour and visiting the Animal Science Department, prospective students can also participate in the Husky Ambassador program. UConn's Husky-for-a-Day Program offers admitted students the opportunity to experience Husky pride first-hand. To register, please email the Husky Ambassador Program at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 860-486-1601.
