College celebrates 40th Anniversary in 2016

40th-Anniversary-logoHappy Birthday to us!

The college is celebrating 40 years of existence in 2016 and will feature activities for alumni and friends as well as within the college to celebrate.

The first event, a 40th Anniversary kick-off celebration was held Jan. 7 in the Banfield Room of the UF Small Animal Hospital. This event was an opportunity for faculty, house officers, staff and students to come together informally to acknowledge this important milestone in the life of the college.

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

Our next event will be our alumni reception at the North American Veterinary Conference, at which we plan to bring together as many emeritus faculty as we can gather, along with other friends and supporters, to enjoy a great party and share memories.

Meanwhile, feel free to walk down memory lane and refresh your historical knowledge of key points in college life on the college’s milestones page.

As the year unfolds, more information will be forthcoming about anniversary-related activities, so stay tuned for more information as it becomes available.
