2017 President’s Membership Letter

My Fellow Veterinary Medicine Alumni Society Members:

As president of The Ohio State University College of Veterinary Medicine Alumni Society, I want to say thank you to all who have contributed to the college endowment and operating funds. Your generosity makes it possible for us to continue advancing the mission of the college. I’m overjoyed that together we are working to support the current and future generations of veterinary medicine.

Last year the Alumni Scholarship Fund provided scholarships to 36 students. Events such as our annual golf outing directly support veterinary student scholarships as well as provide a great networking event. Thanks to the support of alumni like you, 
our alumni society was honored as one of the top Ohio State University Alumni Association societies and clubs. With more than 50 societies and 100 clubs supporting Ohio State through the alumni association, it was a telling award about the commitment and engagement of our alumni. 

In 2017, we will continue to focus on supporting the White Coat Ceremony by providing a coat to every third-year student as he or she transitions to the fourth year — a significant step toward clinical practice. You can sponsor a white coat and include a brief personal note of encouragement to the new fourth-year students — and be their first connection to alumni and the profession.

Please support our students by making your alumni society membership donation today. Your contribution of at least $75 makes you a Sustaining Member of our Veterinary Medicine Alumni Society as well as The Ohio State University Alumni Association for 2017 and helps us continue to support the College of Veterinary Medicine. Thank you for all you do for our students and Ohio State.
