Veterinary and Biomedical Sciences

Jonathan Frankman made the most of his recent trip to Southeast Asia. While studying abroad in Singapore, he earned credit for taking classes in immunology, genetics and pathology. He also found time to visit seven other countries over the span of just seven weeks.

Undergraduate students could take a page out of Leah Giralico’s book when it comes to figuring out a focus for their studies. Although the veterinary and biomedical sciences major in the College of Agricultural Sciences has always had a passion for animals, she came to Penn State unsure of what type of practice she wanted to pursue.

Morgan Brown took a risk last August when she decided to be one of the first students to travel to South Africa through a newly developed immersion program.

Working with animals can be as unpredictable as being captain of the Penn State Majorettes, according to Shahkila Daniels.

Many students have the chance to study abroad. Morgan Porter, a senior Veterinary and Biomedical Sciences major, took the concept to a new level last year.

Picture this: a flock of parrots gathered around a television, watching Cinderella. If that sounds unrealistic, think again. Ashley Hallowell, a graduate from the Penn State College of Agricultural Sciences veterinary and biomedical sciences program, got to witness this very spectacle during her internship with the Philadelphia Zoo last year.

At just 4 years old, Samantha Fanelli had a passion for helping animals. In high school, she knew she wanted to go to veterinary school, so she decided Penn State's College of Agricultural Sciences was the perfect place to prepare, with its hands-on, well-rounded scientific programs. As an incoming freshman, she encountered a variety of opportunities that would open doors for her as a veterinary and biomedical sciences major.
