Purdue's School of Veterinary Medicine to give people a glimpse inside its portals
WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. - The Purdue School of Veterinary Medicine's 47th annual open house on April 17 will feature a wide range of activities, including talks on animal topics, live demonstrations, and a “Vet Olympics” for children.
“The event is a great chance for members of the public to explore the School of Veterinary Medicine,” said Erica Hughes, co-chair of the Open House Committee. “This is a very children-friendly event. We even have a 'Vet for the Day' program, where children can complete a list of activities and get their pictures taken wearing a doctor’s white coat and stethoscope.”
The Open House, which is part of Purdue University's Spring Fest weekend, is a Saturday-only event. All activities, demonstrations and lectures will take place from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Topics for the talks will cover veterinary school admissions, cancer in pets, pet emergencies, the Columbian Park Zoo and raptors. The lectures will be presented in Rooms 1136, G167 and G210 of Lynn Hall.
Children can get their torn stuffed animals sutured by junior students in Room G119 of Lynn Hall.
All events take place at Lynn Hall and are free for the public. For more details visit http://www.purdue.edu/svmengaged/studentsEngaged/OpenHouse
