In 1973, the LSU SVM accepted its first class of veterinary students. For more than 40 years, we have been dedicated to saving lives, finding cures and changing lives through outstanding clinical and community service, groundbreaking research and educational excellence. Coinciding with our 40th anniversary is our ABC Challenge, a fundraising plan to augment three key programs: (A) advancing cures for cancer, (B) biomedical research and (C) companion animal health facilities and equipment enhancements. Each represents our future, our mission and our service to the community.
On May 3, the LSU School of Veterinary Medicine hosted the 39th annual Awards and Honors Banquet at the LSU Union.

Over $204,000 was distributed to students in the form of awards and scholarships. In addition, some students received memberships to professional organizations, journal subscriptions, and veterinary medicine manuals and supplies. Faculty and staff awards were bestowed at the beginning of the evening.
