The 2017 College of Veterinary Medicine (CVM) Open House.

All about animals

Vet School open house

The annual College of Veterinary Medicine open house, free and open to the public, will be held April 7, 10 a.m.-4 p.m. (Pets are not allowed.)

This annual event provides a chance to get a closer look at veterinary medicine, tour the college and learn more about its facilities, equipment and everyday routines.

Students, faculty members and staff will be on hand to answer questions about careers as a veterinarian, a veterinary technician or an animal care specialist. Careers in veterinary medicine have traditionally involved working with dogs, cats, cows, horses, sheep and pigs. However, this rapidly growing field also provides opportunities to work in the animal health industry, government and armed forces and with many other species in zoos, wildlife refuges and developing countries.

A complete schedule is available online.
