Alumni Weekend 2013 was a wonderful three day celebration with plenty of hugs and "you look great" comments to go around.
Penn Veterinary Alumni Weekend kicked off with a dynamic Dean's Alumni Council meeting on Friday. That afternoon, over 70 people enjoyed tours of the New Bolton Center facilities followed by the Dean's Welcome Reception at Allam House. The weather held out long enough for everyone to enjoy wonderful food and drink on the lawn. Reunion classes joined together for photos with their class flags and then several classes headed off for special dinners at locations around Kennett Square.
The Saturday festivities brought alumni and their families to the Philadelphia campus for a morning Coffee and Conversation session where alumni were able to speak with current faculty members. It was then off to the Courtyard to enjoy a good old fashioned cookout under the tent, complete with live music. One of our Penn Vet Working Dogs and his foster mother joined the celebration as well as one of our alumni authors Howard Krum who has authored "An Animal Life" based on his and his classmates experiences in vet school.
The weekend culminated with a brand new Alumni Weekend event - a Penn Veterinary tent party at the Willowdale Steeplechase in Kennett Square. The turnout was wonderful for this first time event with alumni and their families enjoying an amazing view of the race track, delicious food, prizes for best hats and much more.
We hope you will join us for Alumni Weekend 2014 which will include even more surprises and fun events: May 17 - 19, 2014.
