Food Science Institute

Food Science Institute - Academic Resource Center


The Food Science Institute Academic Resource Center (FSI-ARC) is designed to reduce the cost to students of obtaining an undergraduate food science degree by reducing the ever-increasing costs of buying textbooks each semester. It is designed to be a "gift that keeps on giving." The textbooks are reused by many over several semesters, as opposed to direct one-time scholarship awards. This was possible to the generous donation by Danisco.

The Institute has multiple copies of various textbooks for the classes listed below and are available in the Food Science Institute office (216 Call Hall). These textbooks can be checked out by food science students on a daily basis or overnight if desired. Checkout will be on a first come/first served basis.


Food Science students have the privilege to use 2 computers and a printer for last minute assignments. The computers/printer are located in 216 Call Hall.

Fountaine Reading Room Library

Food Science students can enjoy using the reading room library to study without being disturbed. You can either work individually or in groups. At the library there are multiple textbooks, journals, and magazines available for you to use and help you with your class papers, research, etc. The textbooks, journals and magazines can't be removed from the library. Any questions, contact Nicole Marple at nmarple@ksu.edu.
