Alumni Activities

Keeping in touch with our alumni is important to the mission of the LSU SVM. Our alumni are our ambassadors, and we strive to provide you with superior continuing education opportunities and a place to call home when they are in Baton Rouge. The LSU SVM hosts alumni receptions at veterinary events around the country (e.g., AVMA Conference, Western Veterinary Conference), and we host an alumni homecoming weekend each year.

For information about alumni events and programs, please contact Gretchen Morgan, Director of Alumni and Donor Relations, at

Please note that ALL dates are tentative, pending LSU and different state regulations at this time.
