New Year Begins for DVM and Veterinary Nursing Students
“Welcome” and “welcome back” were familiar sayings heard in the hallways of Lynn Hall in the past couple of weeks as new students arrived for the start of their veterinary education while other Purdue Veterinary Medicine students who were away for summer break returned to campus. Sights and sounds of students visiting in the hallways and meeting-up at favorite gathering spots around the building signaled the start of classes Monday, August 20, and a return to the typical hustle and bustle associated with the beginning of a new academic year.
There are 84 students in the incoming first-year DVM class – the Class of 2022. The students come from across the country, with a total of 20 states represented as well as Puerto Rico. The class also includes three international students. The class members began their Purdue veterinary education with a comprehensive week-long orientation program that started Monday, August 13.
Meanwhile, the Veterinary Nursing Program also welcomed new and returning students, both on-campus and online. The Veterinary Nursing on-campus program has 28 incoming Clinical Year 2 students enrolled for the fall semester. The class includes students from Indiana as well as North Carolina. Orientation for the Veterinary Nursing on-campus program began Friday, August 17.
Please help extend a warm “welcome” or “welcome back” to the new and returning students in our PVM family.
