AMES, Iowa – The College of Veterinary Medicine at Iowa State University graduated 121 new Doctors of Veterinary Medicine at the college’s commencement ceremony at C.Y. Stephens Auditorium in Ames on May 8.

 
During the ceremony, Associate Dean Eldon K. Uhlenhopp welcomed guests. The 2010 commencement speaker was Dean John U. Thomson, holder of the Dr. Stephen G. Julesgaard Endowed Deanship in Veterinary Medicine. In his address to the class, Dean Thomson offered the following advice: 1) realize that you are good enough; 2) find your passion; 3) seek good mentors; 4) put in deliberate practice to refine yours skills; and 5) when you get the chance, dance, because there is no greater vocational satisfaction than preparing yourself and then stepping up to accept the greater challenge.    
 
After the commencement address ISU President Gregory L. Geoffroy conferred the degrees on the class. The ceremonial hooding and awarding of diplomas was led by Dean John Thomson. Dr. David Dan Whitney, president of the Iowa Veterinary Medical Association, administered the Veterinarian’s Oath to the graduates. The recitation of the oath is a time-honored practice to remind the newly conferred veterinarians of their obligations. The oath expresses essential values of professionalism for the practice of the art and science of veterinary medicine.
 
To date, the college has graduated over 6,400 veterinarians.
