Summary and Implications
The Department of Animal Science at Iowa State University has experienced a tremendous increase in undergraduate enrollment in the past decade, yet the placement rate of graduates remains at almost 98%. While the industry continues to expand its demand for qualified graduates, this placement rate is not accomplished by chance or without a strategy. This strategy is put into place during the prospective student visit which often occurs during the student’s junior or senior year of high school, and continues throughout their career at Iowa State University.
