UF to Host Animal Science Career Exploration Program
University of Findlay’s Animal Science Program is hosting a career exploration event for high school students. An informational session will be held on Tuesday, Oct. 1 from 5 – 6 p.m. at the Dr. C. Richard Beckett Animal Science Building, located at 14700 Ohio 68 in Findlay, OH.
The program, named Exploring, is designed to give students information about careers in animal science provided by various veterinarians, animal scientists, and animal science students at Findlay. Registration for the year costs $41.25 and students in the program meet once a month at the Dr. C. Beckett Animal Science Building. While the program is offered through the local Boy Scout Council, anyone who is willing to travel to the barns is welcome to join.
Area senior Alexis Bishop participated in a trial version of the program to investigate a budding interest in the animal science field. “Attending the University of Findlay’s Exploring Animal Science Program offered me the opportunity to realize that majoring in animal science is how I want to begin my journey after high school,” she said. The hands-on aspects of the Exploring program helped Alexis understand the biology and physiology of today’s farm animals. “I’ve learned about the care animals require, their body structures, and some of their unique traits. This experience has given me an idea of what types of animals I would like to work with in the future,” she said.
