In our last blog post, we mentioned that some sheep will be visiting campus tomorrow. That event is Cummings Goes East. Cummings veterinary staff will be bringing piglets and sheep to the academic quad tomorrow from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.


You can see examples of animal handling and physical examinations throughout the day. Faculty will be on hand to discuss farm animals, New England agriculture, and the Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine at Tufts on the Grafton campus.

Also, you can learn about different aspects of veterinary medicine at the annual Veterinary School Open House this Sunday, September 20, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Visit Tufts Tickets to reserve a spot on the free bus from the campus center to the Cummings School in North Grafton. You can view the schedule and map on the Cumming School website. The activities will be fun and educational for all ages.

You can stay updated about more events like these by getting involved with the Tufts Institute for Human-Animal Interaction and signing up for their newsletter. TIHAI has volunteer opportunities, relevant course offerings, and a Student Scholars Program.
