What Our Students Say

“The prestige and reputation of being an Aggie Veterinarian was evident when talking to professors and veterinarians. While visiting the university myself, the ambassadors were very welcoming and helpful. By the time my visit had ended, I knew this was where I wanted to be.”

Adrian Arellano

DVM Class of 2023

“One of my favorite parts of fourth year is getting to speak with clients and letting them know I’m taking care of their pets to the best of my ability and treating them with love, like how I would want my own pets treated.”

Amanda Tabone

DVM Class of 2020

“It’s one thing to be a veterinarian, but it’s even more special to be an Aggie veterinarian and to share the experience with my family.”

Jacob Warner

DVM Class of 2023

“You should absolutely be proud of and emphasize anything that you have that gives you a unique story and is a different path than other people followed to get here. That’s what makes you able to bring your own unique skills and your own unique background to veterinary medicine, which is awesome.”

Emily Hoskins

DVM Class of 2021

“Even from my limited experience in research, I’ve witnessed some incredible breakthroughs in cancer research, which is really exciting. However, there are still so many more questions we can answer…as a lab animal veterinarian, my hope is that I can serve as a conduit for the field of cancer research.”

Duc Nguyen

DVM Class of 2020

As a poultry veterinarian, if a [production] plant says, ‘We’re noticing this problem; what’s going on?’ I might end up tracing that all the way back to the feed mill…I like that poultry vets get to have their toe in every single area of production and get to investigate what’s happening.”

Jason Sousa

DVM Class of 2023

“I always wanted to help animals since I was 12 years old. I figured that if I was going to do anything for the rest of my life and call it work, it would need to involve animals because I wouldn’t enjoy anything else.”

Orville Tucker

DVM Class of 2022

“People here have amazing and diverse talents.…I think it’s so inspiring to be able to share space with people like that and to hopefully contribute some interesting things of my own to our diverse field.”
