Amy Pajcic, a fourth-year veterinary student at the college, recently competed in American Ninja Warrior. Michelle Warnky, a fellow classmate, introduced Pajcic to the reality TV show.

Associate Professor in the Department of Veterinary Clinical Sciences Dr. Elizabeth Santschi was interviewed by NBC4 concerning the nasal strip worn by the 2014 Kentucky Derby and Preakness Stakes’ winning horse: California Chrome. The strip allows a horse to breathe more freely while it races Santschi said, which caused controversy over whether or not Chrome would be permitted to wear it in future races.
