Meet the CVM Class of 2022

Another year, another 100 new members of the NC State College of Veterinary Medicine family.

The Class of 2022, the CVM’s seventh 100-member group, will go through student orientation from July 31-Aug. 3 on campus, followed by a formal welcome to the college during the traditional White Coat Ceremony at 3 p.m. Aug. 4 at the McKimmon Center. Classes begin Aug. 8.

Meet the next generation of veterinarians who will make the CVM even more extraordinary.
