Welcome to the Mississippi State University Food Science Club!
We accept all students, regardless of major, that have an interest in the world of food science and technology.
Please feel free to explore this site to learn more about our club and some of our activities.
The objectives of the club shall be to foster a close relationship among the Department of Food Science, Nutrition, and Health Promotion students and the faculty at Mississippi State University, to encourage leadership, to acquaint students with the many areas of activity in food science and technology, and to promote greater interest in this profession.
The Mississippi State University Food Science Club was organized in 1975 and received its charter from the Institute of Food Technologists in 1976. Membership is open to all students interested in foods and food technology, but is composed primarily of Food Science, Nutrition, and Health Promotion majors. The purpose of the club is to promote food science, aid in the overall student education, and to cooperate with food science clubs from other universities to achieve common goals.
The Food Science Club at Mississippi State University is composed mostly of graduate and undergraduate students in the field of Food Science, Nutrition, and Health Promotion. The club has regular meetings, and students cooperate on several club activities and fundraisers. The money collected from these fundraisers is used to sponsor many events such as industry-related field trips, new member recruitment, and to support students attending annual conferences.
Along with hands-on experience, the club provides a useful networking tool for those involved. Students become more acquainted with each other, the MSU faculty and staff, and many professionals within the food industry. These relationships often prove to be priceless as graduates enter the work force and build their careers as food industry professionals.
