A New Veterinary College for New England?

This just in from a news station in Hartford, Connecticut:

A University of Connecticut board of trustees committee is weighing options for establishing a veterinary college. They discussed a consultant's report yesterday indicating it would cost between 35- to 95-(M)-million dollars to build the school for 100 students. It could take up to 14-(M)-million-dollars a year to run it.

Currently the only vet college in New England is Tufts,with campuses in North Grafton and Boston, Massachusetts.

Did you know that Harvard University once had a thriving vet college side-by-side with the medical college? There still are a lot of animals at Harvard...used for research purposes...
