College Overview Sessions

September 13

September 27

October 11

October 25

November 8


These overview sessions will include an admissions session, a student panel and a tour of the College of Veterinary Medicine, Veterinary Clinical and Professional Skills Center and the Veterinary Medical Center.  The tentative schedule is below:

  • 2:00 p.m. - 2:30 p.m. -- Admissions Session 
  • 2:30 p.m. - 3:00 p.m. -- Student Panel (Question and Answer Session)
  • 3:00 p.m. - 4:00 p.m. -- Tour 

The Veterinary Medical Center is a working hospital and our patients are our top priority. Like patients in a human hospital, our patients are here because they need medical attention. Because of this, the tour is not a hands-on experience. Also we must be mindful of biosecurity, liability, patient confidentiality and operational issues; therefore, the following restrictions have been implemented:

  • Visitors must be at least 14 years old to visit the hospital
  • Group size is limited to 12 people with at least one chaperone
  • No photos or videos are allowed to be taken in the hospitals due to patient confidentiality
  • Visitors must refrain from touching patients
  • Talking is allowed but noise must be kept to a minimum while in the medical center
  • Visitors must be accompanied by a tour guide at all times while in the medical center
  • Anyone who has been out of the country within the past 10 days of their visit will not be allowed to tour the Veterinary Medical Center

The College of Veterinary Medicine is a secure-access facility, therefore self-guided tours are not allowed and we are unable to accommodate walk-in requests for tours. We will have Walk In Hours intended to provide guidance for students with specific application related concerns on Tuesdays and Thursdays 12 - 2 p.m.  This is NOT a visit opportunity.  Tours are NOT included.
