OPEN HOUSE

SATURDAY, APRIL 7, 2018
DOORS OPEN TO THE PUBLIC FROM 10:00AM - 4:00PM

The students, faculty, and staff of the Cornell University College of Veterinary Medicine invite you, your family and friends to their 52nd annual Open House.  Veterinary students and members of the faculty and staff host this annual event that provides a chance for those interested to get a closer look at veterinary medicine. They invite you to tour the college and learn more about the facilities, equipment, and what they do every day.

Students, faculty members, and staff will be on hand to answer your questions about a career as a veterinarian, a veterinary technician, or an animal care specialist. Careers in veterinary medicine have traditionally involved working with dogs, cats, cows, horses, sheep, and pigs. However, this rapidly growing field also provides opportunities to work in the animal health industry, government, armed forces and with many other species in zoos, wildlife refuges, and developing countries.
