LSU Veterinary School hosts Alumni Homecoming Weekend
The LSU SVM is celebrating our alumni with an Alumni Homecoming Weekend. Begin your visit to Baton Rouge with the annual Fall Family Picnic on the LSU SVM grounds, tailgate with your classmates (as well as faculty, staff and students) for the Towson State vs. LSU football game. Oh, and there’s a couple of hours of CE in there if you’d like to attend that as well. We hope you’ll join us September 28-29!
