The transition to the rigorous D.V.M. Program can be particularly challenging for some students. The Veterinary Themed Residential Community in Aggie Village provides an opportunity to live with other first-year veterinary students in university housing. The program also offers enhanced support through targeted resources that focus on academic success and well-being.
The year-long program is available to all incoming D.V.M. students who will begin the program in the fall of 2023. Students from underserved backgrounds and those who report a disadvantage or who are experiencing a personal challenge are encouraged to apply.
- Located just across the street from the D.V.M. first-year facilities in Aggie Village, modern university apartments that serve undergraduate and graduate students, postdocs, and visiting scholars
- Monthly workshops on topics like health and wellness, university resources, personal finance, and career development
- Regularly scheduled group tutoring
Considerations for Participation
Living in Aggie Village
Interested applicants should review the Aggie Village website for information on room layouts and rental rates. All participants will pay the stated rental rate for the type of housing assigned. Given the amenities included, rates are competitive with those in the greater Fort Collins area.
Participants will be assigned to a two-, three-, or four-bedroom apartment, with no option to select a roommate. The goal is to have all students living with other veterinary students, but depending on available rooms and participants, it may be necessary for a veterinary student to live with students from other programs. In this case, roommate compatibility and undergraduate/graduate standing will be considered but will not prohibit space assignment.
Commitment to Community
The program will last for fall and spring semesters of the first year, and members are expected to make every effort to attend workshops, planned events, and to engage in a manner that promotes community among participants. View monthly workshop schedule.
