Dear alumni and friends

By now, you should have received your March edition of SAM, in which we have launched our first Travel Photography Competition. It is open to alumni, students, staff and donors of the University, and there are some fantastic prizes. Enter and view our March entries at the Competition website.

Please note the Faculty of Veterinary Science Alumni Awards close on Friday 12 April. It gives you a great opportunity to nominate a Faculty graduate who has made an extraordinary difference to their community. Please download your nomination form here, for more information on the program.

Kind regards
