Save the date for the U of I Vet Med Open House

The University of Illinois Vet Med Open House is Sunday, October 3rd from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. The annual event celebrates creatures, of course, but also the science and the humans that treat them. Most of the demos and exhibits will be outdoors this year. A map of where to go and park is available here. The event is free and open to the public. 

From the Facebook event page:

Come one, come all! Explore your love for animals at our student-run event which hosts lots of exhibits and activities, animals, and learning opportunities! Vet Med Open House showcases the animals, science, and diverse opportunities that all fit within a veterinary career. Whether you’re interested in becoming a veterinarian, love being around animals, or are just a curious cat in general, come out to the Vet Med Open House!

To protect public health, many exhibits will be located outside in tents. The usual “Kids Tent” activities have been suspended this year to avoid extended close proximity of individuals.
