is known internationally for its College of Veterinary Medicine
-- at least among those interested in the profession
. According to it's own Web site
, the university imposed the highest requirements of any university on its veterinary students the day it opened in 1868
, and was the first university in the United States
to assign a professor to that study.
The place is also rather a shock to visit if you're used to the American Midwest, since half the campus is built on the side of a mountain. I wouldn't ride a bicycle on that campus if you paid me, since one out of control ride across the quad would send me plummeting to a stony death. Spectacular view, though.
