While the ISU VeterinantJn enjoys its 50th anniversary edition, another ISU tradition commemorates a landmark. The annual SCAVMA Scamper celebrates its 5th running this spring. The Scamper, organized by the ISU Student Chapter of the American Veterinary Medical Association (SCAVMA), is a combined 10-kilometer road race and 5-kilometer fun run held each spring. Its purpose is to raise funds to defray expenses of ISU veterinary students attending the annual national SAVMA Symposium. The symposium is an exceptional educational opportunity for veterinary students, and each year ISU's attendance ranks among the highest of all veterinary colleges.
