Class of 1985 - 25th Anniversary Reunion
Thanks to all of you who attended the 25th Anniversary Reunion. For those unable to attend, you were profoundly missed. Some of us look a little different, but we managed to figure out who was who, and had a great time!
The weekend began with dinner at Bistro 33 in downtown Davis that afforded us a chance to get reacquainted. Saturday was scheduled with a variety of activities that included a light reception, the Schalm lecture, building and facility tours, and the chance to meet some of the current veterinary students. The students were bright, enthusiastic, and proud to be entering the veterinary profession. Just like us in 1985.
That evening we and other alumni from the classes of 1960, 1970, 1980, 1990 and 2000 attended an Alumni Dinner in Freeborn Hall. While the meal had a few “glitches” that were eventually resolved, the evening was one of celebration and fellowship.
Spending time on campus and with one another reminded us how much our veterinary education has meant to us and our families. This discussion raised the possibility of making a class gift to the school in celebration of our 25th reunion.
After discussing several ideas, we agreed to create the Class of 1985 Endowed Scholarship Fund with our contributions. With veterinary student fees now standing at $30,246 per year, many students graduate with $100,000 or more in debt. They need and deserve our help!
If you are one of those who have not yet made a pledge to the Class of 1985 Endowed Scholarship Fund, please complete and mail the card along with your check made payable to UC Regents. You will never have a better time or opportunity to give something back to the School of Veterinary Medicine and at the same time lend a hand to future generations of veterinary students.
If you have any questions, please contact one of us or the alumni office at 530-752-7024 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Jenny, Liz, Steven, Beth, Tony and Roberta
P.S. The best part is that we can see each other again this spring when the scholarship award is made to a deserving student!
