School Tours

We are no longer able to offer K-5 School tours. Please accept our apologies for any inconvenience. As an alternative, The College of Veterinary Medicine offers an Open House each year. Open House provides an opportunity to tour the school as well as interact with faculty, staff, students and animals. Open House is free, open to the public, and suitable for all age groups. Our next Open House will be March 28, 2015.

For students age 15 and older, see the information on admission based tours offered by Student Services.
