We believe the future of agriculture exists with OSU students, so we strive to equip the next generation of animal scientists with the support they need to achieve their degree. Membership with this organization generates both the financial support and industry connections needed to be successful in today's industry. Events throughout the year are designed to enhance the deep networking core of OSU graduates while allowing members the opportunity to give back to this world-class department.
The OSU Animal and Food Sciences Department has over 1,000 undergraduate and graduate students from over 40 states and several foreign countries. These statistics make animal science the largest department on the OSU campus, and one of the most prestigious animal and food science departments in the nation. Providing financial assistance to students through scholarships and covering judging team expenses is the foundational mission of this alumni group. In order for OSU animal and food sciences students to continue setting national records and obtaining executive industry positions support must continue, so we need your help.
Take time to look over the many opportunities to get involved with this great organization. The Gala event each spring offers opportunities to donate or purchase items in support of students. The 2019 Gala Reunion Scholarship Auction raised over $65,000! Additionally, chairbacks and signs can be purchased at the Totusek Arena to promote your company or team while enabling OSU students' additional support to achieve their goals.

" My goal is to become either a large or mixed animal veterinarian. This is why I want to have a solid undergraduate foundation of livestock management to build upon and have a successful veterinary career. "
" I knew in my heart that the animal science department would not only push me to become a better student...but it would also make me a better person by the people I would be surrounded by. "
" The words of the alma mater are something I hope to carry in my heart throughout my college experience and into my adult life . "
