Experience CALS in person: Visit Day Invitation 2013-2014

We invite you to come explore the University of Wisconsin- Madison and learn about exciting opportunities awaiting you in the College of Agricultural and Life Sciences. We encourage you to bring a parent/s or a friend to one of our 2013-2014 College Visit Day Programs for four-year degree programs.

Your visit will include information on the college, admissions, housing, scholarships, financial aid, and career opportunities. Students will also take a walking tour of our beautiful lakeshore campus with a student ambassador as your guide.

Our program is unique as you will have an opportunity to personally meet with advisors in up to two areas of study that interest you.

*A note about Farm and Industry Short Course: if you are interested in attending the Farm and Industry Short Course Preview Day, please follow the Short Course link, these programs are different and will cover different topics.
