A shuttle service will be provided at 7am to bring student to
the Veterinary School and will pick up students starting at 3pm to
bring them back to La Quinta. You will need to find a ride or
reserve a cab for Night Out at Northgate.
The weather in January can range from dry and 80˚F to wet and
20˚F, and anywhere in between. We recommend dressing in layers as
some labs are inside and some are outside, and we can never
predict the weather in Texas. The website will be updated with
weather predictions as wet lab approaches, so check back!
For the labs closed toed shoes are REQUIRED and coveralls are
highly suggested. Many of the labs use fresh cadaver specimens and
even the live animal labs can get VERY dirty.
Don't forget to pack something to wear to Northgate if you plan
on attending Night Out at Northgate! Whatever you would normally
wear to a bar is fine, but this bar has a great dance floor where
there will be lots of two steppin'!
