Schedule A Guided Tour
Thank you for your interest in touring the Texas A&M College
of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences (CVM). Tour guides
are current veterinary
and biomedical sciences students, known as ambassadors, who are
excited to show you our college.
Tours are designed for teenagers and adults. The tour showcases
both the Veterinary & Biomedical Education Complex (VBEC) and
the clinical areas within the Veterinary Medical Teaching Hospital.
For the safety of both our visitors and our patients, all
hospital visitors must be at least 13 years old and must not touch
or pet the animals. Like patients in a human hospital,
these animals are here because they need medical attention. For
families with children under the age of 13, we are happy to offer
an abbreviated tour of the academic areas of the college and the
opportunity to talk to a current student about veterinary school.
We also host an annual Open House event
each spring that provides tours and interactive activities for all
The tour is not an appropriate field trip for groups of
children younger than high school age. Teachers and others
who would like to arrange an animal-themed presentation for their
younger students should contact our PEER
Tours can be scheduled Monday through Friday at 12 p.m. and 3:30
p.m. (beginning on Jan. 2, 2018, tours will be at 12:30 p.m. and
3:30 p.m.) and on Saturdays at 10:30 a.m. They generally
last about an hour and a half, although this can vary
widely depending on your group, the number of questions you have,
and what is going on in the hospital during your visit.
A special note for December tours:
The CVM will not offer tours from Monday, Dec. 18, through
Monday, Jan. 1, so that ambassadors can return home to
celebrate the holidays with their families and loved ones. Texas
A&M University will be closed Monday, Dec. 25, through Jan. 1.
Tours will resume at 12:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Jan. 2. Merry Christmas
and Happy Holidays to all Aggies and friends!
If you have any questions about the tours, or if you need help
arranging your visit, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org. We hope to
see you soon!
