Greetings from Midwestern University

Happy New Year! We are excited to ring in 2015 by launching our newest version of the Alumni Pulse. The Alumni Pulse offers news from your college that is most relevant to you and updates on the recent happenings of your fellow classmates. By sharing this information, we hope you will feel a continued connection with Midwestern University and your classmates.

This year marks the 115th anniversary of Midwestern University, and there are a number of accomplishments to share with you. The College of Veterinary Medicine at the Glendale campus matriculated its first class of students this past fall. Furthermore, Arizona became home to the largest veterinary clinic in North America when Midwestern University opened the Companion Animal Clinic on December 16th. The 111,800-square-foot teaching clinic is designed to provide learning opportunities for students as they serve the local community's pets and their owners. We are enormously proud of this expansion into veterinary science as it reflects our dedication to the One Health initiative.

We hope you enjoy this issue of the Alumni Pulse and encourage you to contact us if you have any questions or would like to tour our new facilities. We always enjoy hearing from you!

Wishing you all the best for 2015!
The Office of Development and Alumni Relations
