When it comes time to build their own clinic, some ISU students will be more prepared for such a project, thanks to Hill's Pet Products of Topeka, Kansas. Each spring, Hills sponsors the Veterinary Medical-Architectural Student Hospital Design Competition. In this competition one veterinary student and a teammate from the College of Design are assigned the formidable tasks of designing detailed floorplans, building scale models, and completing an extensive portfolio. This portfolio outlines the space utilization, efficiency, construction, and aesthetic concepts that went into their design.
