CVM Homecoming Celebration

Alumni from the UF CVM gathered for the traditional Homecoming celebration on Nov. 9, enjoying barbecue and a morning of visiting with faculty, staff and students as well as former classmates at the IFAS Straughn Center before heading over to Ben Hill Griffin Stadium to root for the Gators.

This was the second year of hosting the event at the Straughn Center, which is located across from the UF Large Animal Hospital and affords a spacious venue for a large group.

More photos from the event can be found on the college’s Facebook page here.
