As of the start of the fall semester Monday, August 22, a new class of Veterinary Nursing students has joined the mix of people traversing the hallways in Lynn Hall.  The 30 students in the Veterinary Nursing Class of 2025 spent their first year at Purdue studying across campus, so, although this is their second year in the on-campus Veterinary Nursing Program, this semester marks their first time going to class in Lynn Hall. 

The week began with an all-day orientation.  Dr. Chad Brown, Veterinary Nursing Program director, kicked off the orientation program with a presentation entitled, “Your Professional Journey Begins Today.” He shared insights about “Listening like a pro,” “Communicating like a pro, “Being accountable like a pro,” and “Advocating like a pro.” Dean Reed then gave a personal welcome to the students, after which several speakers provided information covering everything from Lynn Hall e-mail lists to Emergency Preparedness, PVM Counseling and Wellness Services, and the Veterinary Nursing Student Organization.  The students also toured teaching facilities, received an overview of fall semester courses, met course instructors, and picked up uniforms and equipment.

“We are excited to have these excellent students starting their coursework in Lynn Hall,” said Dr. Brown.  “After spending the past year completing core curricular classes across campus, these students now get to really dive into their veterinary nursing studies.  We know they are looking forward to that and we are looking forward to seeing them excel in their veterinary nursing classes and clinical training.”

The class is mostly from Indiana with three students from out of state – one each from California, Michigan and Utah.  The class includes one male student and boasts an average high school GPA of nearly 3.7 and average Purdue GPA of just over 3.4.

Welcome to Lynn Hall Veterinary Nursing Class of 2025!
