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 do and see. We encourage children to dress up in their best halloween costumes! Some of the activities children will participate in are the teddy bear surgery, anatomy showcase and meeting Bullet and Pistol Pete and an anatomy showcase.
