On Saturday morning during the Fall 2019 New York State Veterinary Conference, the lobby of the Animal Health Diagnostic Center was filled with students and alumni eager to connect, share stories and network. This year, over 45 students and 20 alumni participated.
“I enjoy participating in the alumni/student networking event because it helps me reconnect with the college in a more personal way,” says Mara Digrazia ’92, D.V.M. ’96. “Before it begins, even with over 20 years of experience, I wonder what I could possibly offer them. Within seconds, I always find myself surrounded by eager, inquisitive students interested in things that I had lost interest in. In a flash, the event is over and I leave feeling rejuvenated by the spirit and drive of the Cornell vet[erinary] student. I greatly appreciate this opportunity and I can see the students love it, too!”
