The White Coat Ceremony

The white coat symbolizes the knowledge our students gained during their first three years of veterinary education. They have chosen to dedicate their lives to veterinary medicine and will go on to become leaders in their communities. The day they receive their white coat is a crucial step in their professional journey.

Help students continue their journey

By sponsoring a white coat, alumni confirm the continuity of excellence shared by all college graduates. Your gift to the Class of 2025 impacts their future, tying past and present together, as you support students who share your commitment to preserving the human-animal bond, protecting our agricultural economy and preserving a safe food supply.

We hope you will take this time to reflect on when your journey began. By sponsoring a white coat, you can make a difference in the life of a student today who will make a difference tomorrow.
