About Open House

During our Open House, we encourage pet owners, those interested in pursuing veterinary medicine careers and anyone who is interested in learning more about activities at the College of Veterinary Medicine to join us for a day of exploring veterinary medicine. Our students coordinate Open House and are very proud to show visitors the many different facets of their profession. 

From research, to teaching tomorrow’s practitioners, to treating Oklahoma’s livestock and companion animals, there is much to see and do at Open House.
