Members of Purdue Veterinary Medicine's fifth class to reach its Golden Anniversary, the DVM Class of 1967, received special recognition during a day of nostalgic events September 22. The activities began in the morning when the class members gathered at Lynn Hall and took advantage of the chance to don white coats as they embarked on tours led by students in the DVM Class of 2018. Then they convened for lunch to hear a presentation by Dean Willie Reed about the College's plans for new facilities in the coming years, before boarding buses for a driving tour of campus.

In the evening, the class members gathered at Mountain Jack's Steakhouse in Lafayette for their class reunion dinner. The evening began with a reception and entertainment by the Purdue Musical Organization's Lonely Hearts performing group. Dinner was followed by an opportunity for class members to share their recollections of their days at Purdue and their life experiences that have transpired during the 50 years since they graduated.
