The North Carolina State University Animal Science Club and the Animal Science Department are planning their Sixth Annual Alumni Reunion for Friday, April 4th, 2008 at the Beef Education Unit on Lake Wheeler Road in Raleigh.

The Animal Science Club Day event will be held the same afternoon beginning at 1:00 p.m. Feel free to come and watch current students compete for top showmanship honors exhibiting swine, horses, sheep, dairy and beef cattle.

Dinner will be provided that evening followed by the infamous Ag Olympics. All attendees are welcome to compete. This is a social gathering with no formal program but rather an opportunity to visit with old friends, faculty and staff from the department.

Current members of the Animal Science Club organize the reunion each year and are the primary sponsors.

If you are an Animal Science graduate or a former member of the NCSU Animal Science Club and you have interest in attending the 2008 event or would like more information, please contact us at the following e-mail address: mabell@ncsu.edu.

The Beef Educational Unit is located just off Lake Wheeler Road, approximately 1 mile South of Tryon Road in Raleigh. The easiest access is from I-40 on the South side of Raleigh. Take Exit 297 and travel south on Lake Wheeler Road for about 1.5 miles and cross Tryon Road. Then follow Lake Wheeler Road about 1 more mile south and turn right on Mid-Pines Road. The Beef Unit drive is on the right and the red-roofed building is clearly visible from Lake Wheeler Road.
