AQ teams tackle lab practicum stations


July 19, 2016 – Utah State University welcomed four ASAS Academic Quadrathlon teams yesterday. Students competed in nine lab practicum stations and a written exam. After a day of intense competition, students got to relax and mingle with the ASAS Board of Directors during a bowling and pizza mixer.

The competition culminates today with the four teams (representing Chico State University, Purdue University, Texas A&M University, and the University of Rhode Island) competing in oral presentations and a quiz bowl.

The overall winner will be announced on Wednesday evening during the ASAS Awards Program.

The AQ program is a platform to integrate more undergraduate involvement at our meetings. Please join ASAS in supporting these young animal scientists!TAMUAQ
