Veterinary student volunteers organize the college’s annual Open House in April. During Open House, more than 2,000 people tour the college and attend educational presentations to learn about the scope and depth of veterinary medicine and the college’s admissions requirements. They also enjoy entertainment such as agility dog shows, horse shows and presentations about raptors, reptiles and rabbits. Students handle logistics, marketing, media relations, crowd control and coordinating with outside vendors.
After careful consideration, and out of an abundance of caution relative to the rapidly evolving circumstances around the coronavirus and COVID-19, the College of Veterinary Medicine has decided to cancel this year’s Open House. We look forward to welcoming visitors to our campus next year.
