Welcome to horse country, home of the thoroughbreds, where students will experience life on campus while learning about the many aspects of animal science and veterinary medicine. The program will stimulate and promote students’ interest in and knowledge of veterinary medicine through a series of hands-on, experiential activities, such as animal dissection, venipuncture of goats, field trips to a horse farm and a dairy farm, and a behind-the-scenes tour of a local zoo. These experiences are facilitated by university professionals, veterinarians, and other specialists from various agricultural and animal science industries.
