CVHS House System

crests for CVHS house sytem

The House System is popular in the United Kingdom and used by many schools in the United States, including some veterinary schools! The OSU CVHS House System aims to focus on promoting intellectual growth, mental and emotional health, social development, cultural competence and physical health.

Members of the CVHS (students, graduate students, faculty, staff, and house officers) were sorted into one of four houses (Camuti, Ewing, Iben, and Krull). This is the first system or organization to include all members of the CVHS, allowing students to connect with other members of the CVHS family early in their education. The four houses were named after individuals who shaped the trajectory of veterinary medicine through innovative theory and demonstrated passion and dedication to the profession as a whole.
