NEW STUDENT ORIENTATION
Incoming students are required to be in St. Kitts one week prior to the start of classes to participate in new student orientation.
Each semester’s Orientation includes a series of activities designed to introduce students to the University, the profession, and the island.
We believe that for students to be academically successful, it is important for them to settle comfortably into the environment of the island and to have opportunities to learn about the culture of St. Kitts. The Orientation program is aimed at assisting in this process. Some important components of the orientation program include a discussion of Life in St. Kitts, a Curriculum Overview, Leadership Development, Security, and Life in Balance sessions.
The Orientation program concludes with the White Coat Ceremony, where students are officially welcomed into the veterinary profession. This takes place each term with the first semester students on the afternoon of the first day of classes. The program includes all students reciting the Veterinary Student Oath.
