Conferences & Networking Sessions

The conferences, leadership and networking sessions are the perfect opportunity for CORE participants to meet with leaders, many who are OVC alumni, who have chosen interesting career paths. The session on graduate studies and veterinary specialization introduces participants to current graduate students at OVC in a variety of programs and departments. All our guests are here to tell you about the choices they made and what they've learned along the way.

Networking sessions begin at 7:00AM in sections B and C of the cafeteria. Breakfast is included. Guests will be introduced to the group and student participants spend 15 minutes or more at one guest's table and then switch to chat with the next guest. A 'mixer' at the end of the hour follows the session.
