dc.description.abstractThis news item is about: Pause at the top of Tower Road to visit the Cornell University College of Veterinary Medicine, and you can’t help but notice its grand entrance — a broad boulevard of paved stone and artfully planted grass and shrubs, flanked by shining stories of glass on either side. The space is at once welcoming and inspiring — inviting visitors to stroll towards the entrance to the college as they admire the reflections of foliage, stone and sky. This is Lefty’s Plaza, made possible by a gift from Judy and Fred Wilpon, and named after their beloved golden retriever. “He was one of a kind, and so is this plaza,” Judy Wilpon said to the Cornell’s Board of Trustees at a luncheon on May 25th. “This plaza is a portal for our future veterinarians to become caretakers and life savers for our pets. I hope students know when they enter the new Veterinary Education Center through Lefty’s Plaza, they are stepping into the wondrous world of discovery, innovation and practical clinical skills.”
