Ross Vet Celebrates Graduating Class of 2020

May 19, 2020

Congratulations to the RUSVM Class of 2020. You did it!

Ross University School of Veterinary Medicine (RUSVM) celebrated its 54th commencement ceremony on May 16, 2020. One of our treasured traditions, this year’s commencement ceremony was our first-ever virtual ceremony celebrating the 378 DVM and MSc graduates, and their hard-earned achievements. The Class of 2020 joins our network of over 7,000 alumni making a difference in communities around the globe and are the true definition of ‘Rossie Resilience’.

RUSVM was honored to have Banfield Pet Hospital’s Chief Medical Officer, Molly McAllister, DVM, MPH deliver the keynote address. Dean Sean Callanan, Ph.D., MVB, MRCVS, CertVR, DipECVP, FRCPath facilitated the Recitation of the Veterinarian’s Oath and each graduate was recognized during the Conferral of Degrees. Celebratory videos from the board of trustees, Alumni Action Council and RUSVM faculty, and a video yearbook tribute, with music provided by a local St. Kitts steelpan band The St. Christopher Steel Band, closed out the online event.

Commencement is a celebration of not only an ending, but the beginning of a new, exciting chapter in life. This year’s ceremony was a time to commemorate academic achievements, life experiences, and the friendships built as students and colleagues. The event was made even more special with the online involvement of student families and friends cheering them on.

Best wishes to the Class of 2020! Stay strong and stay safe, until we meet again.
