Change a life!
College is expensive and veterinary school is really expensive. Our students graduate with an average debt load of $113,000, which is $27,000 less than the national average. Our ability to attract promising future veterinarians, and to compete against other institutions for the highest achieving students, depends on our capability to fund scholarships. Your gift, large or small, toward scholarships will change a life. Don’t believe us, read the stories below about how support like yours changed the lives of our students.
