In early June 2010, more than 300 alumni and their guests came to Cornell to celebrate reunions from their fifth to their 70th.
Alumni, family and friends attended a variety of university-wide activities and specific College-related programs. A few highlights of the College of Veterinary Medicine reunion included the DVM Welcome Reception on Thursday, June 10, where Cornell President David Skorton and College of Veterinary Medicine Dean Michael I. Kotlikoff welcomed alumni and guests and tours of the Janet L. Swanson Wildlife Health Center, the Baker Institute for Animal Health, the Feline Health Center, and the Companion Animal and Equine Farm Animal Hospitals.
Alumni and friends had the opportunity to reconnect and share those special memories made during their time at the College at the Veterinary Alumni BBQ and Class Receptions and Dinners.
The Class of 1940 had 3 of its 4 members return for their 70th Reunion Celebration and the class of 1960 earned the Deans Cup for highest class participation in giving to the College of Veterinary Medicine (34%)
Although things change quickly and time passes, alumni who returned to Cornell realized firsthand that their alma mater is as special a place today as it was when they graduated.
