Blue Coat Ceremony

The Blue Coat Ceremony is the perfect venue for faculty of the College to formally welcome you into the veterinary profession.  The blue coat you will recieve is your badge as a veterinarian-in-training. It indicates to hospital and basic science personnel your first year status as a student.  The ceremony will be on the afternoon of Sunday, August 26, 2012 beginning at 1:00 p.m. and should be over by 4:00 p.m. at the latest.  It is located at the Holiday Inn, 1001 Killarney, Urbana, IL.  A reception will follow at 2:00 p.m. serving appetizers and drinks.  Following at 2:30 p.m., we will be offering a student and family member information session.  This session will help in orienting you to your new college environment while family members and other interested parties learn what to expect and how to support their new veterinary student during these next four years. Family members are invited to attend, but we do have to limit you to three guests per student due to space availability.  You are requested to RSVP via the form you will return stating the size of lab coat you desire.
