The UPEI Men’s Hockey Panthers will be looking for redemption when they take on the Acadia Axemen on Friday, December 2 at MacLauchlan Arena. The Panthers are heading into the final game of the first half of the season with a 5-9-2 record, having lost 5-2 to the Acadia Axemen (10-5-1) last Saturday night in Wolfville.
The Equine Foundation of Canada (EFC) has generously provided AVC with $127,000 for state-of-the-art equipment used to diagnose and treat lameness, cardiovascular, and gastrointestinal conditions in horses.
AVC’s first annual Client Appreciation Reception, held earlier this month, was a resounding success! About 85 clients of the College’s Veterinary Teaching Hospital (VTH) attended as well as AVC faculty, staff, and students.
It’s bound to happen at least once every winter, and this year it’s already happened once this week, PEI gets walloped with a storm, leaving students, faculty, and staff wondering if they need to come to campus or not.
Congratulations to Emma Martin (Women’s Hockey) and Milorad Sedlarevic (Men’s Basketball), the UPEI Panther Subway Athletes of the week for November 21-27!
