Undergraduate Advising

All students entering the Food Science program will first meet with undergraduate adviser chair Ingolf Gruen. Professor Gruen will help you assess your goals and determine how any previous course work will fit into a Food Science degree program.

You then will be assigned a faculty adviser who will work with you as you progress through the degree program.

You can count on your adviser to help you select the appropriate classes each semester and to help you develop a semester-by-semester graduation plan.

The Food Science faculty offer several help sessions before each early registration period. During these help sessions, faculty provide advice on selecting courses and meeting graduation requirements and will distribute consent forms for courses offered by the Food Science program.

The Food Science faculty is also dedicated to advising students on an on-going basis with key issues such as career decisions, finding internships, scholarship opportunities, industry liaisons and networking, building a competitive portfolio, among others.
