Auburn veterinary college hosting 103rd annual conference April 8-11

AUBURN – The Auburn University College of Veterinary Medicine hosts its 103rd annual conference April 8-11 at the college’s Wire Road campus and The Hotel at Auburn University and Dixon Conference Center. Veterinarians, technicians and spouses will gather for seminars and class reunions.

“We welcome our graduates home to Auburn,” said Dean Timothy Boosinger, “and offer knowledge and information for veterinary healthcare today.”

Auburn graduate Jeanne Swanner Robertson, class of 1967, will be the conference keynote speaker. Robertson is the great-granddaughter of I.S. McAdory, the second dean of Auburn’s College of Veterinary Medicine. A professional speaker whose comedy is based on her life experiences, Robertson talks about the importance of humor in the work place.

“Class reunions are also a large part of the conference and this year we host fifth-year reunions for classes from 1960 to 2005,” said Dean Boosinger.

A golf tournament at the Auburn University Club at Yarbrough Farms on April 8 will help raise funds for special projects at the college. On April 9, a Back-to-College Night for attendees includes tours of the veterinary college and birds of prey from the Southeastern Raptor Center.
