Open House (Self-Guided Tours)
Students interested in applying to the DVM program are strongly encouraged to visit
the SVM during the Open House, at which time prospective applicants will have the opportunity to not only see a
great deal of the school and hospital, but also to meet many of our current students
and faculty members throughout the self-guided tour. Open house visitors can take
their time walking through the self-guided tour and along the way receive presentations
from our students on every aspect of the hospital.
If you are a middle school or high school student or if you have a large a group and would like to request a tour for you and/or your group, you should contact Ginger Guttner, SVM Communications Manager, at firstname.lastname@example.org. The group must consist of no more than 15 people, and children should be at least age 14 or older, and the group should have an agricultural, animal, medical, science or veterinary medical focus.
Photographs are not allowed during tours. This policy is to promote the safety and privacy of students, faculty, staff, clients, and visitors.
Prospective Student Tours
Walk-in or drop-in tours and/or informational meetings are not available. All tours must be scheduled at least 1 week in advance by submitting an online request using the form below. Photographs are not allowed during tours. This policy is to promote the safety and privacy of students, faculty, staff, clients, and visitors.
SVM Tours are a good way for prospective students to meet members of the SVM community as well as other prospective students. However, because space is limited, the maximum number of people for each tour is 10. Once all 10 slots are filled (this includes propective students and their guests), no additional prospective students will be added to the tour. Accordingly, try to limit yourself to one guest (e.g. a spouse), but two guests are fine if you are bringing both of your parents. NOTE: Children are not permitted to tour the hospital.
Please submit a tour request at least 1 week in advance of a desired date and time. Requested tour dates and times are not guaranteed. You will receive an e-mail confirming your tour if we are able to accomodate your request. If you are unable to make your scheduled tour, please call the LSU SVM Student Affairs Office at 225-578-9537 to cancel.
