Life on Campus

  • Student Story: Catching up with Jazmeen Suleman


    Knowing that Ross Vet is located in the Caribbean was a huge positive for me. I could not wait to get out of the cold and have summer all year round. My favorite thing about the island is being able to experience a different culture. My friend and I participated in Carnival this past December and January. We bought costumes and marched in the parade. It’s something you don’t get to do anywhere else. I love St. Kitts!

    360 Virtual Tour

I made the choice to leave the comfort of my home (for the first time) to have memorable experiences at a school (Ross Vet) that offers a wide range of clubs and even classes that I would not have been able to experience at any school in my area.
