Adulting in Veterinary School: being a morning person! 

September 2018

Veterinary school demands long hours: long hours of class, long hours of studying.  It can be incredibly difficult to wake up for those 8:00 AM classes or 7:00 AM extra-curriculars -especially during Iowa Winters where you will commonly get to school, and leave school, without ever seeing the fleeting sun.

On that dreary note, I would love to share some ways to trick your body into being a morning person.
