The Class of 2022 officially started their veterinary education on August 24 at their 2018 AVC-CVMA Blue Coat Ceremony. The new students were presented with blue lab coats, signifying the beginning of their four-year journey toward their doctor of veterinary medicine degrees.

Welcoming them were Dr. Alaa Abd-El-Aziz, President and Vice-Chancellor of UPEI; Dr. Greg Keefe, Dean of AVC; and Dr. Kathleen MacMillan, the CVMA’s council member for Prince Edward Island and a faculty member at AVC.

"It is really invigorating to see the enthusiasm and passion for the veterinary profession shown by our new students,” says Dr. Keefe. “It certainly reminds us of why we are all here!”

He thanked the Class of 2021 for the welcome they gave to the students and their families, particularly orientation organizers Kelly Yoo, Cody Bourque, Liz LeGay, and Emily Rose, as well as staff in the Office of the Associate Dean of Academic and Student Affairs, and the Dean’s Office.

On Monday, August 27, the new students dove right into their program, attending their first lecture of the year. We thank the CVMA for supporting our incoming students at their Blue Coat Ceremony.

Welcome and congratulations, Class of 2022!
