You and your team find yourselves to be some of the last healthy people around. Your presence is requested by the Food Protection and Defense Institute to uncover the cause of this mysterious illness, consider roles and responsibilities, and in general, clean up this mess before you are reduced to a heaving fool.

The College to Career seminar takes place at the Leman Swine Conference, an annual educational event for the global swine industry. The Leman Swine Conference brings hundreds of participants from over 20 countries to St. Paul to learn about science-driven solutions from major players in swine production, animal health, and marketing.

"I loved the professional panel. Hearing about what life may be like as a large animal vet was incredibly helpful. Please keep this for next year's seminar! I greatly benefited from it."

- Senior student, School of Environmental Studies 

"I always appreciate the time given by professionals and students to give the high school students some perspective...and the opportunity to ask questions."
