New Year excitement

Jan 3
Doug Parrett, Interim Head of the Department of Animal Sciences
  

The start of 2013 brings a lot of excitement for the Department of Animal Sciences in ACES. For seniors, it will be the last semester of classes with exciting career opportunities ahead. For other undergraduates, there is continued learning and experiences that will be challenging, fun and hopefully, enriching. For the many great teachers in Animal Sciences, there is the excitement of meeting new students and engaging them in our many classes.

I have spent the past five months serving as the Interim Head of the Department of Animal Sciences, but I also have kept my teaching assignments. Teaching is the most important mission of our great university and the most rewarding for most professors. ACES students are academically strong and very motivated, which make them a lot of fun to teach. I look forward to the interaction and learning experiences ahead in 2013 with our Animal Sciences students. Students who engage the learning process gain the most from classes and are the most fun to teach!
