Fall events always generate excitement around the college and enthusiasm for our many programs and activities. This past month featured the Horse Farm 100 cycling event (see story here)  Dog Days Run and Veterinary Technician Day. Can you keep up? It’s hard, so much is going on! Here are a few shots from the past month, capturing some of these events and life at the UF CVM.
