ESCAPE Club to UC Davis
- For the March field trip, the ESCAPE Club went to UC Davis.
The Vet School welcomed us in the morning and showed us around.
Some of the current students
there led us through a couple of recent cases
in a big classroom. Then we headed into a huge room
where we saw an
ultrasound, an anesthetists tools, how to intubate a dog, how to stitch up
and even a practice rectal exam! We got to see the vet
hospital itself, both for large and small animals,
and saw an amazing
collection of preserved specimens and organs from an array of species.
then headed onto the main campus, and enjoyed lunch in the dining commons. The kids were mesmerized
by all the options, and it was really a
highlight. We continued our tour by seeing the main quad, walking by the
library, seeing a big lecture hall, and even went into the dorm room of
one of our ESCAPE alumni!
We saw the pool, and the new football stadium,
and lots more. It was a great experience for our kids
to see one of
the top universities in the nation.
