North Campus Drive Road Closure August-December: Alternate Traffic Routes to ADRDL
Beginning on August 20, the stretch of North Campus Drive from Medary Ave. east to the ADRDL will be closed to traffic in order to facilitate a major utility project. This closure will last until December, 2018. The project has also resulted in the permanent closure of the parking lot between the Animal Science building and the ADRDL/Vet Science building. Access to the ADRDL remains in place via a detour on North Campus Drive (red line on map). The detour can be accessed off the Highway 14 bypass via Stadium Drive or Jackrabbit Avenue.Read more about Road Closure

Enhancing Animal and Human Health through Service, Education, and Research
Whether for students or for the public, service lies at the center of the Veterinary and Biomedical Sciences Department. Our undergraduate students benefit by receiving an educational foundation that makes them competitive applicants to colleges of veterinary medicine, and our graduate students can sharpen their professional development with the help of a wealth of scientists willing to partner with them in research.
The Veterinary and Biomedical Sciences Department also has laboratories that help expand service to the public. Prompt and accurate diagnosis of animal health problems is the role of the South Dakota Animal Research and Diagnostic Laboratory, which is one of only 36 accredited veterinary diagnostic laboratories in the nation.
Another critical component of the Veterinary and Biomedical Sciences Department is a dynamic group of researchers who search for new ways to prevent and detect
animal and human diseases.
The interaction of service, discovery, and education that takes place within the Veterinary and Biomedical Sciences Department results in new knowledge, timely information, and students prepared for careers that make a difference for animals and people alike.
The Veterinary and Biomedical Sciences Department is a great place from which to launch your career. Give it a look today!
