Cornell University, College of Veterinary Medicine Open House

Cornell University, College of Veterinary Medicine Open House

10:00AM- 4:00PM


The students, faculty, and staff of the Cornell University College of Veterinary Medicine invite you, your family and friends to our 51st annual Open House.

Open House is our opportunity to share the joys of our profession with the community. Veterinary students and members of the faculty and staff host this annual event that provides a chance for those interested to get a closer look at veterinary medicine. We invite you to tour our college and learn more about our facilities, our equipment, and what we do everyday.

Students, faculty members, and staff will be on hand to answer your questions about a career as a veterinarian, a veterinary technician, or an animal care specialist. Careers in veterinary medicine have traditionally involved working with dogs, cats, cows, horses, sheep, and pigs. However, this rapidly growing field also provides opportunities to work in the animal health industry, government, armed forces and with many other species in zoos, wildlife refuges, and developing countries.

There will be a National College Fair at the Buffalo Convention Center on Wednesday, March 15, 2017 (9 a.m. – noon; 6 p.m. – 9 p.m.) and Thursday, March 16, 2017 (9 a.m. – 1 p.m.).
