The Food Science Club at NC State meets Tuesday nights in Schaub 105 during the Fall and Spring semesters for dinner at 5:30pm followed by a meeting at 6:00pm.


The Food Science Club is an organization of students that study or are interested in the food science discipline at North Carolina State University.  The Club provides students the opportunity to interact with other students, professors, and professionals in the field of Food Science beyond the classroom atmosphere.
Weekly meetings incorporate presentations from professors and companies in the food industry.  Members of the Club develop professional skills while participating in Institute of Food Technologists Student Association (IFTSA) and food-industry sponsored competitions.
