  • ✪ Day in the life of a first year vet student.


As a first year vet student, life can be pretty busy. It’s usually an early start, with a packed and varied timetable throughout the day. The vet school has a great community though, so chatting with friends over coffee is the best way to start the day. Lectures usually last for around an hour and are the main way that course content is delivered. It’s a great opportunity to learn from experts in the field and really engage with the topics you’re learning. For a lot of subjects covered in the lectures, there are also follow up practical sessions in the lab, where we can further explore the topics learned. This gives us the chance to apply our knowledge and back up the lecture content. The lecturing staff are always on hand, so you can ask questions and get clarification on the material. Being a vet student, like any other student, requires quite a lot of self-study and there are great spaces like this one, where you can go when you want a place to work. There's lots of support too from staff and other students. Guidance from the VetPAL Leaders really helps you adapt to studying at the University. Although the first few years are primarily non-clinical, even in the first year we start to learn the basics of clinical skills. This includes giving the signalment of an animal, as well as learning how to use a stethoscope. You really start to feel like a real vet. Getting hands on experience starts from year one. We learn how to handle and work with a wide range of animals. We also do Extra Mural Studies. These are placements outside of vet school, giving us a chance to get practical, real life experience, as well as the opportunity to travel. Even after a busy day of classes, there’s still plenty to get involved with. The vet school has a wide range of sport clubs and societies, and there’s a lot on offer at the main university too You can try something you’ve always wanted to try and meet some really great folk along the way.


William Howard was born at Hinesburg, Vermont. When he was fourteen, Howard apprenticed to a cabinet maker at Albion, New York. He graduated from Middlebury College at Middlebury, Vermont in 1839. Howard taught school before moving to Michigan for health reasons. Howard spent a year teaching mathematics at the University of Michigan. Then, Howard studied law and was admitted to the Michigan bar in 1842 before practicing law in Detroit. In 1850 he was a lead defense attorney for those accused of plotting the burning of the Michigan Central Depot in Detroit.[1]

In 1854, Howard was elected as an Opposition Party candidate to represent Michigan's 1st congressional district in the 34th Congress, and was re-elected two years later. He successfully contested the election in 1859 of George B. Cooper to the 36th Congress and served from May 15, 1860, until March 3, 1861; was not a candidate for renomination in 1860

After leaving Congress, he became Chairman of the Michigan Republican Party from 1862 to 1868. From 1869 to 1871, Howard served as land commissioner of the Grand Rapids and Indiana Railway. In 1871, Howard ran unsuccessfully as a Republican candidate for the United States Senate. From 1872 to 1878, Howard was the land commissioner of the North Pacific Railway.

In 1878, Howard was appointed as Governor of Dakota Territory by President Rutherford B. Hayes. The appointment was approved April 12, 1878. At the age of sixty-six, Howard came to Dakota Territory and served as Governor until the time of his death, spending the last part of his life residing in Yankton, Dakota Territory. Howard died in Washington, DC.
