Thank you for joining us for the
20th annual Vet School Open House!
The students, staff, and faculty of
the Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine want to thank you
for visiting our campus on April 20. We hope you enjoyed your
time with us as much as we enjoyed the opportunity to teach about
our passions in veterinary medicine.
If you have any questions regarding
this past year's event, a topic that has intrigued you since
learning about it at Open House, or any area of veterinary medicine
& animal health, please do not hesitate to contact us!
We look forward to spending time
interacting with you in the near future!
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!
Thank you for expressing interest in Vet School Open House!
I hope we were able to share the joys & wonders of
veterinary medicine with you and your family through this year's
event. We were thrilled to welcome thousands of guests to
campus on April 20, and we are eagerly anticipating next year's
