  • Vet school talk

    https://www.dallasnews.com/opinion/c...inarian-school

    Popped up in my feed. Interesting to see the politics shaking out in public. Normally dont see so much push for public support unless it's an election.

    TAMUK already has a new vet hospital now in operation on campus (on university farm) that supports the new VET TECH bachelors degree. I visited the hospital on the day it was inaugurated, but I really don’t know much about how the program operates. Very impressive facility to say the least.

      I think the big push is because of our location. Beef capital of the world. We need large animal vets. Regardless this is just reenforcing what my friend told me a few months ago (I put it in the stadium thread awhile back) WT may end up with a full VET school when it is all said and done. A&M might just pull the trigger and turn the new VET curriculum at WT into a new VET school to keep Tech from opening one. Would be pretty easy to convince the state. Already have the facilities in place, have the curriculum (would use A&M's), and already have the personnel at WT to do it. Tech would have to build all of those systems at the cost of millions of dollars.

      Either way it's good for WT. Millions and millions of dollars invested on our campus.

        Yeah, but the powers that be in Amarillo are willing to give $70 million to Tech but don't do squat for WT. Oh, yeah! They did buy a $4 million dollar building in downtown Amarillo for WT's Amarillo campus.

          The front gate to the King Ranch opens to the Blvd leading directly to the TAMUK campus. Talk about cattle and horse country. I have no idea what the future holds for Vet Medicine in our part of the Cowboy world.

            Don’t put this off on the good folks in Amarillo or Texas Tech. Why don’t you put your focus on who is really to blame here. Positively 100% sure it’s Texas A&M.

            Btw, all of the A&M D2 LSC schools have that band aid degree called Vet Tech. It’s a way in which A&M can have the final say as to who gets to be a Vet in this state.

            At this point, I’m leaning 80-20 that Texas Tech gets the Vet School that should have been for WT. Same scenario played out in El Paso where tu argued against a medical school there and today UTEP grads go to Tech Medical School.

            All anyone there wants is a Vet School and they aren’t concerned if it’s WT or Tech at this point.

            A&M will stall and run interference as long as possible. I now know why they cut down all those trees for a bonfire. It will help them better see the forest.
