The Center for Veterinary Health Sciences (CVHS) recently broke ground for a new classroom building. The new classroom facilities will elevate the educational experience for students and best prepare future veterinarians.

“With the addition of this classroom, the CVHS will continue to be the destination for students who want to receive a high quality veterinary medical education as well as those seeking continuing education,” said Dr. Carlos Risco, CVHS dean. 

Give to the Classroom Building Project

Giving plans include three new flexible classrooms while making room for specialized training in existing instructional space. View the Classroom Facilities Handout to see specific naming opportunities.

Groundbreaking

The groundbreaking ceremony took place on Nov. 29, 2018.  For the official ‘groundbreaking,’ the CVHS turned to man’s best friend. Natty, a bullmastiff owned by Dr. Dianne McFarlane, pulled a cart holding the ceremonial shovels. Provost Sandefur, Senior Vice President Joe Weaver, Dr. Gilmour, and class of 2022 representatives Cody Blalock and Courtney Longhouse joined Dr. Risco as they each put a shovel in the ground and turned it over to mark the beginning of this impactful project.
