On Saturday, May 6, the College of Veterinary Medicine welcomed 164 new veterinarians into their chosen field at the annual Oath and Hooding ceremony, held at Mershon Auditorium. Surrounded by friends and family, students received their scarlet and grey academic hood as a symbol of their degree. The hood is worn draped around the neck and over the shoulders, displayed down the back with the lining exposed, and is considered the most formal part of academic dress. In addition to recognizing the newest graduates, the College of Veterinary Medicine also recognized five Faculty Award recipients and five Distinguished Alumni Award recipients.
