Saturdays have always been a day of rest, relaxing, and recovering. But it’s also a perfect together to grab the little ones and have a nice family outing. How about visiting a vet or having fun with science? Texas A&M has you covered. On Saturday, March 27, both the Vet School and the Mitchell Institute for Fundamental Physics & Astronomy are opening their doors.
The Vet Open House will start at 9:00 Saturday Morning and is absolutely free to everybody. You can start off with tours through the small and large animal hospitals, going behind the swinging doors. After the tours you can visit various exhibits for organizations, demonstrations by agility dogs, trick horses, etc., and educational exhibits. And of course, you can’t have an open house at a Vet without a petting zoo, reptile room, and fistulated cows.
Has all this inspired your little ones to someday become vets? There will be a Q&A panel with vet students and representatives from the CVM admissions committee who can push them in the right direction. But this open house isn’t just for small children. It’s for people of all ages who have a passion for animals. The Vet is located on University Dr. right outside of the campus.
