Our Centennial: A Century of Excellence! 1905-2005
It has been nearly 100 years since the College of Veterinary Medicine was established at Kansas State Agricultural College in 1905. Since then more than 5,000 men and women have been granted the Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree. Lectures in veterinary medicine were given as early as 1871 and the veterinary science program began in 1872, but the degree-granting curriculum was not established until 1905 and the first small class graduated in 1907.
