Student candidates, 209.

The last weekend in January concluded interviews for the UFCVM Class of ’23! This year, UFCVM’s admissions committee interviewed 315 students from all over the country. For the first time this year, the college hosted a meet-and-greet for students and their parents at the culmination of each set of interviews. We got great feedback and had a wonderful time welcoming all of these students and their families to UF. Shown here in this photo are candidates Liza Godfrey and Alexis Brocious. Best of luck to all of our applicants! (Photo courtesy of Dr. Juan Samper)

A grateful client of UF’s Small Animal Hospital, Heine has established the Sasha Heine Neurology Support Fund in memory of his Boston terrier, Sasha Marie. He was inspired to make this gift because of the care Sasha received from Collinet, a small animal neurology resident. Resident-support funds at the college aid the scholarly activities and training of CVM residents. This recent gift is the sixth Heine has established at UF. (Photo by Sarah Carey)
