Texas A&M's College of Veterinary Medicine is the only veterinary medical college in the state of Texas. The veterinary medical students enjoy the opportunity to sponsor an event that provides the public an educational and entertaining experience that emphasizes the roles veterinarians and animals play in society.

Open House features exciting indoor and outdoor exhibits, a variety of hands-on activities, and tours of several areas in both the large and small animal hospitals that are usually inaccessible to the public.  Veterinary students answer questions about specimens in pathology, parasitology, and anatomy rooms.

Children can experience veterinary medicine first-hand by entering a real operating room and performing Teddy Bear Surgery, one of Open House’s most popular events, on their favorite stuffed animal.

Informational events include a variety of talks given by veterinarians. Prospective veterinary students will have the opportunity to attend question-and-answer sessions with both admissions committee members and current veterinary students.

Open House is FREE, open to the public, welcomes people of all ages, and does not require registration!

Texas A&M University veterinary students invite members of the community to attend this fun and unique event and anticipate that attendance will reach record numbers this year.

There is so much to do and something for everyone at Open House, so bring your family and friends!
