Please send me an e-mail and list the file name(s) and the sizes you need (4x6, 5x7, 8x10). I'll get back to you with an estimate of cost and time.
Each year Dr. Hornbuckle and his CPS technicians organize a breakfast to honor the graduating class. Tables are heaped with great food and lots of people participated. Here are a few photos from that event.
The NYS Veterinary Medical Society sponsored a picnic for the fourth year class at the Cornell Recreation Connection facilities on Hanshaw Road on Saturday.
On Thursday evening, May 22 the annual award dinner was held at the Statler Hotel, Carrier Ballroom. Here are the awards and recipients and few photos from the evening.
The Hooding was held at Bailey Hall on Saturday, May 24 at 2 pm. Candidates for the degree, Doctor of Veterinary Medicine, and CUHA interns and residents completing programs assemble with parents, friends, spouses, partners, colleagues, faculty and guests. Dean Kotlikoff addressed the assembly and placed the hood representing the DVM degree on each candidate. Here is his address to the assembly. The Veterinary Oath was administered by Dr. David Hancock, President of the New York State Veterinary Medical Society. Dr. Dan Fletcher (Norden Distinguished Teacher Award - 2008) delivered the traditional "charge to the class". Professors Fubini and Gilbert recognized the interns and residents who have completed programs in the Hospital. Here are some of those pictures.
