The goal of the Fermentation Sciences Club is to extend the classroom experience to the greater community at the university. Our events will include guest speakers, hands-on fermentations, tastings, in-major mentoring and practical applications. The club is open to all majors, and will act as an academic, professional and social resource for students.
