We are excited to welcome back our Animal Science and Dairy Science students. Here is a quick welcome from our faculty and staff. We thank you for choosing Iowa State University and we look forward to having you back on campus!

As Iowa State continues to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic, many university offices remain closed to the public and services are being provided remotely or virtually. We, in Animal Science, want you to know we are always here for you. We are just a phone call or email away. Go Cyclones!
