For 40 years, Purdue University has been at the forefront of educating veterinary technicians as part of the comprehensive veterinary team. Whether you are an alumnus or friend of the program, please join us in celebrating!

Meet Me @ the Mixer Event to Feature a Class Representative for each of the 40 Years

Join us at the Purdue Veterinary Conference Meet Me @ the Mixer event where a representative from each of the graduating 40 classes will be recognized. Share experiences with other classes, root on your class representative, and reconnect with your former classmates. Each member of the Class of 1976, the first graduating class, will also be recognized.
