Food Science Institute

The “gift that keeps on giving”… the Academic Resource Center!

In just a few short weeks, we’ll be welcoming incoming freshmen to the food science program! The first few weeks can be overwhelming for new students, so make sure to check out this important resource just for food science students.

Inside 216 Call Hall, you’ll find the Food Science Institute Academic Resource Center (FSI-ARC). This is designed to reduce the cost to students of obtaining an undergraduate food science degree by reducing the ever-increasing costs of buying textbooks each semester. Here, you’ll find multiple copies of textbooks for a wide variety of classes (see here for the full list). These textbooks can be checked out by food science students on a daily basis, or overnight if desired. This center was made possible thanks to a generous donation by Danisco.

Also in 216 Call Hall are two computers and a printer available to students for last-minute assignments and projects.

In addition, students can enjoy the Fountaine Reading Room Library, available so students may study without being disturbed. The library is also a useful space for group work, and contains multiple textbooks, journals, and magazines available for student use.

We hope our new students enjoy these resources as they begin their food science education. For any questions, please contact Elsa Toburen at etoburen@ksu.edu.
