First Graduating Class of 1910
The musty smell of formaldehyde overwhelms their senses as the first students of the Colorado Agricultural College of Veterinary Sciences enter the blood-stained cement floor of their classroom. Eager to learn, and oblivious to the potential health hazards surrounding them, the students, without gloves or face masks, begin work dissecting a horse. Memorization is their key source of learning, with small tablets and pencils hidden in white lab coat pockets for quick notations. Working from dawn to dusk, with a case load of 25 hours each semester, these 27 students are unaware that they set the standard of dedication and hard work that will become the trademark of the College for the next 100 years.
