"It takes a pack to raise a vet."

Family and friends are critical to the success of our veterinary students. Join us for a fun and informative event to see what lies ahead for first year Penn Vet students! Hear from school leaders, staff, students and alumni and get to know more about the daily life of your veterinary student.

Hosted by the Office of Alumni Relations, Parents & Partners Day is chance for you to get a sneak peek into the life of a vet student and for us to show how much we appreciate those that support our students.

Please note: This event is for first-year Penn Vet students and their family and friends only.
