The College of Veterinary Medicine conferred 147 Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degrees on May 9 during a Stephens Auditorium ceremony. The class of 2015 included 24 Nebraska residents who completed their veterinary curriculum at Iowa State through a cooperative agreement with the University of Nebraska.

Iowa State also held separate commencement ceremonies for master's and doctoral students and for undergraduate students. Videos of those events are available now on the registrar's YouTube website.
