UNL’s Open House for LPS Schools @ Animal Science Complex

The University of Nebraska–Lincoln Extension is hosting its annual Open House for Lincoln Public Schools at 6 to 8 p.m. Oct. 3, 2016, at the Animal Science Complex on UNL East Campus.

Middle and high school students interested in pursing a degree in animal science with a focus on companion animals, horses, or livestock, will have the opportunity to meet with our faculty and get information on majors and classes offered.

“The Open House is a great opportunity to learn how to connect your interest in animals to a college program and eventually your career,” Lisa Karr, Companion Animal Specialist, said.

“Students can learn about different aspects of animal science including nutrition, genetics, and health and get the opportunity to speak with professors and current students and experience hands on activities.”

Students will venture through the animal science building on a scavenger hunt for information.

They will also hear about the various animal-related organizations such as Equestrian team, Livestock and Horse Judging teams, Students for the Education of Exotic and Companion Animals, Pre-Vet Club, and Block and Bridle.
