White Coat Campaign Donations Surpass Goal
Thank you to all of the generous individuals who contributed to the Purdue University College of Veterinary Medicine’s White Coat Ceremony “Sponsor a Student” campaign! This year’s success surpassed any other year, with sponsorships amounting to enough funding for 105 white coats. White coats will be given to the 84 members of the DVM Class of 2022 to celebrate their transition from classroom to clinic. The additional contributions received beyond the 84 coats needed for the class will help provide wellness programs and scholarships to enhance the student experience.
Through the “Sponsor a Student” campaign, the college’s alumni and friends provided personal notes of support for each student to give encouragement as the students transition from classroom learning in the first three years of the DVM program to hands-on clinical experience in their fourth year. May our students continue their progress and success as they prepare to don their own personalized coats! The coats will be distributed during a special ceremony in May that, this year, will be limited to the students, in keeping with Protect Purdue policies, but will be made available via live stream to family and friends, who will receive an email with further information.
