Open House is put on for anyone, and there is something for everyone!
There are exhibits throughout the hospitals if you’re interested in
seeing what happens behind closed doors at your pet’s vet clinic.
Everything is presented at various levels to incorporate young and old
whether you’re familiar with what you’re seeing or not. For the
youngsters, Teddy Bear Surgery is very popular! The presentations put
on throughout the day are designed to appeal to all ages and
audiences. There is a traditional petting zoo as well an entire room
of reptiles and exotics (ZEW room) to look at, touch, or hold! Open
House also features many non-profit organizations and rescues for many
types of animals. If you’re in high school or college and are
interested in vet school, I would highly recommend the two vet school

everyone has a great time!

Homeschool info
http://www.letu.edu/_Admissions/for-homeschool/
For decades, LeTourneau University has gladly accepted and welcomed home schoolers into its close and unified campus community. Almost one-fifth of the current traditional student body were home schooled for their high school experience. LETU offers exceptional opportunities that help home schoolers ace the transition to university life.
LeTourneau University’s 2013 Home School Symposium was held in June 2013
LETU offers what we believe to be the single largest endowment solely dedicated to home schooled students ever established.
