Welcome to the Food Science Club!

The LSU Food Science Club is a student organization, a student chapter of the national organization of the Institute of Food Technologists (IFT)and consists of both undergraduate and graduate students enrolled at Louisiana State University. The Food Science Club provides numerous activities intended to promote student involvement in local, regional and national IFT activities. The club also assists student's professional development, help students better understand society, develop teamwork skills and a sense of social responsibility and be prepared for the real world. This is done through organized student activities designed to enhance knowledge of food science, expose students to leadership roles and meet professionals employed in their fields of study.

The Food Science Club encourages interaction among students and faculty in the Department of Food Science. Monthly meetings are held to encourage both professional and social development. Club members are invited to bring a dish from their native country for the potluck dinners held after each meeting. Information


LSU Food Science club hosted 35 students from Oklahoma State University, Texas A&M University for the IFTSA (Institute of Food Technologists Student Association) South Central Area Meeting & College Bowl Competition. The two-day event consisted of an industry tour at Manda Fine Meats, campus scavenger hunt, a career development talk and networking events. LSU beat out the competition in the main event - the college quiz bowl. They will 
continue on to IFT19 in New Orleans in June.


The Food Science Club welcomes students from all academic disciplines. Members only need to have an interest in the field of food science.

Club dues are $20 per semester or $30 per year for students, and $40 per semester or $60 per year for faculty.

**Any current FDSC students who can recruit a friend into the department will be waived for one year of dues!!**


The Food Science Club participates in a wide variety of activities ranging from professional and social meetings to volunteer work and competitions.

Professional meetings are organized whenever possible to help students learn about food science in both industry and academia. Also, potluck dinners held throughout the semester allow students and faculty to try a variety of different foods from each students home.

Our club also participates actively in helping to recruit new students to our department and in teaching others about food science. We have attended several student organization fairs to promote our club and plan to attend more in the future.
