EOU alumnus Dan Hansen attends veterinary school at OSU

“I loved EOU because the class size was small and the interaction with the faculty was great. I felt like there was a lot of interaction with the professors and with the smaller class sizes they were always happy to work with students and their schedules. EOU was great for a student like me because it is a smaller campus in a rural part of Oregon where it doesn’t take long to know everybody. Even though it is a small school it definitely prepared me for a competitive program with a steep learning curve the first year and I was able to compete with students from other large universities with big names. I think students who want to enter a professional health field like veterinary medicine should load up on upper level science courses and maintain a high GPA. Also, it is very worthwhile to study and learn about all the different career paths in veterinary medicine. I am working on finishing my clinical rotations so I can graduate from OSU’s vet program in June 2018, and my future plans are to practice beef cattle production medicine potentially feedlot and cow/calf settings.”
