Open House (Self-Guided Tours)

During the Open House, prospective applicants 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.

Group Tours

Group tours are provided on Wednesdays and Fridays at either 10 or 11 a.m. 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. To schedule a tour please contact Ginger Guttner, SVM Communications Manager, at

Photographs are not allowed during tours. This policy is to promote the safety and privacy of students, faculty, staff, clients, and visitors.
