Every spring, the University of Tennessee College of Veterinary Medicine (UTCVM) students organize an Open House for the community. This year’s event will take place on Saturday, April 11, from 9 a.m. – 4 p.m. The theme is “I will give my all for Tennessee veterinary medicine.” Check out the website for more information and the list of Frequently Asked Questions:
Who can attend? The annual event is open to the general public and is a great activity for the entire family. Food is available on site. Please do not bring pets.
What and where is the Open House Tour? As the UT Veterinary Medical Center has grown, it has separated the Open House into two self-guided tours. One tour for the LARGE ANIMAL portion begins at the Equine Rehabilitation Area. The SMALL ANIMAL portion begins at the usual starting point in Lot 65 parking area outside the UTCVM brick foyer. Each portion of the self-guided tour can take between 1.5-2 hours.
Where do I park? When you arrive on the agriculture campus, just follow the signs. UTCVM students will be stationed along the road to assist you with directions.
