Outreach and Events

Our mission to train tomorrow’s veterinarians and research scientists extends outside the college’s classrooms and laboratories into the Auburn community… and beyond. We are committed to sharing what we know and working with our community in animal care and health. Learn more about some of the college’s activities and events.


The College of Veterinary Medicine is excited to announce that after a four-year hiatus, we are finally ready to invite the community back to our campus to share some of the incredible aspects of our college. On Saturday, April 6, 2024 from 9am-1pm the CVM will host its inaugural VetFest. Students, faculty and staff will provide information and exhibits on veterinary medicine and biomedical science. Featured activities will include a canine parade of breeds, painted horse, teddy bear surgery, the Auburn Raptor Center, student club exhibits and much more. This event is free and open to the public. Stay tuned to our social media pages for event updates. Personal pets are not allowed at VetFest.

Vet Camps

Auburn Vet Med partners with the Auburn University Office of Professional and Continuing Education to offer Vet Camps each summer to youth interested in the veterinary medicine profession.

Campers will learn about veterinary medicine first-hand in classrooms, laboratories, and outdoor facilities that include Auburn’s raptor, equine, dairy, beef, and swine units. Campers will learn about public health, food animals, wildlife, anatomy, imaging, and first aid, as well as gain valuable mentoring about veterinary science careers.

Camp participants will experience campus-life while residing in Auburn’s resident dormitories, eating at campus dining facilities, and enjoying evening social and recreational activities. Campers will have 24/7 counselor supervision.
