What do you remember most about UCD Animal Science?

There were so many awesome things about UCD Animal Science but my favorites were the Fall and Spring BBQs, that first lecture with Dr. Famula in ANS1, helping with FFA Ag Field day, the Animal Nutrition field trip to Sac Zoo, living at the Hog Barn, interning at the Horse barn and going to Bishop Mule Days.

Try everything. You may surprise yourself at what you like and find interests you may not have considered otherwise.

The experiences you have now will help shape who you are and the connections you make will stay with you long after your college experience. Enjoy it!
