“Flying saucers” (aka donuts) were among the attractions at the space-themed PVM faculty and staff appreciation event Thursday, August 16. The event doubled as the venue for a cornhole tournament supporting PVM’s participation in the Purdue University United Way campaign.

Purdue Veterinary Medicine faculty and staff enjoyed a “Far Out” experience during a special appreciation event last week.  Staged in Lynn G119/155 due to inclement weather, the “Out of this World” themed event on Thursday, August 16, featured a host of creative decorations, including Flying Saucers (aka donuts), Missile Dogs (aka corn dogs), Astronaut Food (Dippin’ Dots ice cream), Moon Rocks (aka popcorn), and Rocket Fuel (aka punch).

Attendees were invited to write their zodiac signs and related personality characteristics on their name tags to share with their colleagues.  Those who completed the assignment to list the signs and traits from ten of their colleagues earned an Astro Pop.  Special thanks to Director of Alumni Relations and Special Events Susan Xioufaridou for developing the inter-galactic theme and coordinating the event, with the help of several Office of Engagement and Department of Veterinary Administration colleagues.  And a big thank you to the fantastic group of dedicated PVM faculty and staff members who truly are Out of This World!
