Texas Tech President Discusses Continued Future of Veterinary Clinic Plans Despite A&M Moves
Wednesday on KFYO Mornings Texas Tech President Dr. Lawrence Schovanec joined Dave King and Matt Martin to talk about several Texas Tech related topics such as sports, discussions with Austin College, drug problems, and A&M's veterinary clinic.
Schovanec started by talking about recent wins in Tech athletics, particularly with Tech basketball about to play in Dallas. "It's going to be a really neat experience to be there," Schovanec said, going on to say that he is really looking forward to the games.
When asked if he believes that Texas Tech has a drug crisis, the President said that he believes that any university that has young students will have a problem, but that no one has approached him with the belief that the university has a crisis.
Finally he spoke on A&M's opening of a veterinary clinic for students to spend time at and address the issue of large animal care, which could be compared to Texas Tech's plan to open a facility in Amarillo. "It would be very different, I think, then from what Texas Tech has in mind." He says that the main goal of Tech's facility would be to provide a veterinary education without the need for a teaching hospital, and that A&M's clinic has not derailed their plans at all.
