MSU veterinary college hosts open house in April
STARKVILLE, Miss. -- The Mississippi State University College of Veterinary Medicine invites visitors of all ages to attend its 30th annual Open House on April 10 and 11.
The college will open its doors from 9 a.m. until 2 p.m. at the Wise Center in Starkville. The April 10 program is for preregistered school groups. Everyone is welcome to attend on April 11.
The college encourages teachers to register school groups as soon as possible. To register, visit http://www.cvm.msstate.edu/outreach/open-house, and then click on the link “Open House Pre-registration Form” on the right-hand side menu. Teachers may call 662-325-0465 to register.
One of the primary goals of the program is to open the world of veterinary medicine through having fun while learning about animal health and behavior.
Attendees can enjoy a petting zoo, animal shows, learning how to scan pets for microchips, visiting the animal hospital and classrooms, and viewing veterinary displays and demonstrations. Older children may enjoy getting the chance to interact with veterinary students and learning more about careers in veterinary medicine.
