Cornell University: College of Veterinary Medicine celebrates graduating students

On Friday, May 27 and Saturday May 28, graduating students with the Cornell University College of Veterinary Medicine celebrated with family, friends, faculty and staff at commencement week events. The D.V.M. Class of 2022 was greeted at their Hooding Ceremony on Friday May 27, by Lorin D. Warnick, D.V.M, Ph.D. ’94, the Austin O. Hooey Dean of Veterinary Medicine.

“Veterinary medicine offers a wonderful breadth of professional paths and I am confident you will be well prepared for whichever you choose,” he said. He went on to share some memories from his own professional journey, including a moment as a brand new ambulatory clinic intern, in which he was stitching up a horse with an eyelid laceration with an MD — experienced in just such surgeries in people — watching closely over his shoulder.

“Just what we needed — as if my fellow intern and I were not nervous enough already. You may have some similar experiences, but be assured that your confidence will develop quickly,” Warnick continued. “You will have mentors to help you along the way, and I know our faculty stand ready to offer support when you need their advice.”
