    The Class of 1963 provides an opportunity for faculty, students and practitioners to interact annually with an eminent scholar.

Regular visits by outstanding clinicians and researchers promote interactions with other academic institutions, provide opportunities to demonstrate first-hand the strengths of our programs, stimulate recruiting, and generally raise the visibility and reputation of the OSU CVM. The endowed fund sponsored by the class supports the cost of the annual lectureship which is the keynote address for the CVM Fall Veterinary Conference.

    “The intention of the ‘pay it forward’ aspect is the hope that clients who use it will make contributions and that our class, our families, and the community will make yearly contributions to the fund,” explains Dr. Kaitlyn Coyes, class representative.
