Open House 2020 Canceled

It has become evident that we must do our part at the Oklahoma State University College of Veterinary Medicine to help prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus by taking prudent steps to protect our campus. The safety and well-being of our community must be our main priority. After careful consideration and in-depth conversations with our administration, the OSU-CVM has decided to cancel the upcoming Open House that was set to take place on April 4, 2020.

We want to offer our sincere thanks to our veterinary students who have worked tirelessly on this event since October. We also want to thank the vendors and sponsors who continue to support our Open House.

Please mark your calendars for April 3, 2021 when we host the next OSU-CVM Open House.

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.
