About the Club
The Food Science Club is a student-based group composed of both undergraduate and graduate members in Food Science. Meetings are usually held on Mondays in room 252 Food Science Building with a dinner social preceding in the Keeney Commons. Club business and activities are discussed; meetings also feature guest lecturers and presentations from food companies.
The Club promotes interaction between Food Science students, Food Science faculty, and the food industry by supporting various events throughout the year.
Professional opportunities such as information on career placement, networking workshops, food company tours (Food Industry Day), IFT meetings, College Bowl, and Product Development are some of the many activities the club sponsors.
The club also hosts fun social activities, including the annual Food Science Tailgate, scooping ice cream at Harvestfest in DelGrosso's Amusement Park, leisurely trips to New York City, holiday dinners, and sporting events. These activities allow students to get to know each other and form friendships outside the classroom.
