The Hooding Ceremony

Statler Auditorium, Saturday, May 25th, 4 pm. Candidates for the degree Doctor of Veterinary Medicine assemble with parents, friends, spouses, colleagues, faculty and guests. Dean Donald F. Smith addressed the assembly and placed the hood representing the DVM degree on each candidate. The flashbulbs exploded as each candidate took their turn in the spotlight. Associate Dean Gilbert (read his address here), Professor Ron Riis (Norden Distinguished Teacher Award - 2002) - read his address here, and Dr. Walter McCarthy addressed the graduates. The Veterinary Oath was administered by Dr. McCarthy (President, NYSVMS). Here are some of those pictures.
