“Thanks to our very generous donors, the veterinary center awarded more than $578,400 to faculty, staff and 143 veterinary students,” reported Dr. Chris Ross, interim dean of OSU’s Center for Veterinary Health Sciences. “We appreciate our donors and are always glad when we can help our students reduce their debt load.”

Earning a DVM degree provides graduates with many career options including private veterinary practice, military service, biomedical research, the pharmaceutical industry, government roles or academia.
