Almost 900 people attended the fifth annual Animal Science Day Halloween Party on Halloween night, Wednesday, Oct. 31. Although it was a rainy Halloween, the Department of Animal Science was more than happy to give community members a dry place to trick-or-treat and celebrate, as well as a host of other activities to keep parents, kids and dogs entertained.

The event, hosted by Department of Animal Science faculty, students, staff and volunteers, was held at the Pauline Whitaker Animal Science Center. The night featured a livestock "cutie corral" for people to interact with and learn about farm animals, the Pre-Vet Club Pie-A-Professor fundraiser, costume contests for both kids and dogs, a truly impressive haunted house presented by the Animal Science Graduate Student Association, trick-or-treating and education stations hosted by Animal Science clubs, games, concessions, and more.

The Animal Science Day annual event gives the department a chance to educate and celebrate animal science with students, children, alumni and members of the community in a fun and memorable atmosphere.
