Message from the Director
Thank you for expressing interest in
Vet School Open House! I am very excited and honored to be
directing Open House in the upcoming year. In the two decade long
history of this event, our veterinary students, staff, and our
honored guests have enjoyed bringing you and yours a fun,
educational, and inspirational experience. We will be continuing
this tradition in 2017, and look forward to your visit to the Texas
A&M’s brand new College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical
Sciences Education Complex on Saturday, April 1, 2017!

Vet School Open House Director
Vet School Open House started in 1993 as a small showcase of the
college's facilities with a petting zoo. This event has grown into
a massive day of animal-related fun incorporating the entire
veterinary complex coordinated by hundreds of vet students and
undergrads for people from all over the state. We open all the
doors to the college and both hospitals and let the public see
exclusively behind the scenes of Texas A&M's premiere
veterinary school. There are tours through both the small and large
animal hospitals, many different exhibits for rescues and
organizations, tons of demonstrations by all kinds of animal groups
(agility dogs, trick horses, etc.) and animal exhibits galore!
There's a petting zoo, a reptile room with hundreds of scaly
friends, even fistulated cows! We'll also feature a Q&A panel
with both vet students and the admissions committee so you know how
to prepare for vet school if that's in your future.
You will get to see and learn about all the different aspects of
veterinary medicine and best of all, it's free! There's no
registration required either, all you have to do is show up and
enjoy your visit. Thousands of people visit the college for this
event every year, of all ages and backgrounds, and everyone really
enjoys it! There's definitely something for everyone. This year we
have a lot of great things planned already! As the date gets closer
there will pictures, schedules, and more details posted to our
website so check back for more information. Or search for us on
facebook to be a fan and get updates directly. Thank you for your
support of Open House!
