Greetings from the office of the ISU Veterinarian! As I sit and reflect on my time as editor of this unique publication, I am struck by how fast time seems to have gone since I took on this task a volume ago. At that time, I felt certain I was up to the job if only I could figure out exactly what I was supposed to do when! Three issues later, I have a clearer idea of what it takes to make this journal a reality, and perhaps I would be less apt to agree to the job had I known then what I know now!

( 1998) DeNault, Lisa ; Iowa State University Digital Repository

The curriculum is a series of lectures and discussions covering fourteen major exotic animal diseases along with hands-on training.

Cy Joins Veterinarian Staff
( 1998) Kearns, Amy ; Iowa State University Digital Repository

Amy C. Kearns. Yep, that's me. At least that's the name I sign with my Iowa State pen everytime I use one of my Iowa State checks that are found inside my Iowa State checkbook holder. I am probably the biggest Iowa State fan you will ever meet. Ever since my parents met on the campus ofIowa State University some 33 years ago, my blood has been destined to flow both red and yellow. So what does that "C" stand for in my name? Well, my parents would like to have you believe it stands for my middle name, but they are off their rocker, because everyone knows it stands for Cy.
