CVM Recognition Rites
The College of Veterinary Medicine held its Recognition Rites in the morning of July 4, 2015 at the D.L. Umali Hall. Forty-four (44) graduates for the degree of Doctor of Veterinary Medicine and two (2) candidates for the degree Master of Science in Veterinary Medicine proudly walked up the stage to receive their diploma and hoods. The guest speaker for this year is Dr. Mary Joy Gordoncillo, CVM alumna and former faculty member.

She also reminded them to be excellent in their chosen profession and to uphold the ideals that CVM and UPLB stand for. In response, Ms. Gladys Maria V. Pangga, class valedictorian (cum laude), voiced out what each member of the Graduating Class felt: gratitude for people who were instrumental in their success, a sense of accomplishment for completion of their degree and excitement of what is to come in their chosen fields. CVM celebrates with the Graduating Class of 2015 as they enter a new chapter of their lives.
