The North Carolina State University College of Veteri­nary Medicine is located on a 182-acre site in Raleigh, the state capital, which has a population of more than 400,000. The sandy shores of North Carolina’s beauti­ful coastline are a short ride to the east, and the Great Smoky Mountains are to the west. The climate includes mild winters and warm summers.

The College of Veterinary Medicine opened in the fall of 1981 and encompasses 20 buildings on the main Cen­tennial Biomedical Campus, including a teaching hospital, classrooms, animal wards, re­search and teaching laborato­ries, and an audiovisual area. The college has 140 faculty members and a capacity for 400 veterinary medical students with training for interns, resi­dents, and graduate students.

Construction started fall 2002 on the Centennial Biomedical Campus, which will be anchored by the College of Veterinary Medicine. An extension of the original NCSU Centennial Campus concept, the Cen­tennial Biomedical Campus will house approximately 30 building sites. It will include an additional 1.6 mil­lion square feet of space over the next 25 years, result­ing in a five-fold expansion of the current college and veterinary health complex. The two-year construction of the Randall B. Terry, Jr. Companion Animal Vet­erinary Medical Center was completed in June 2011. The Terry Center is considered the national model for excellence in companion animal medicine. The Terry Center offers cutting-edge technologies for imaging, cardiac care, cancer treatments, internal medicine, and surgery; has more than double the size of the former companion animal hospital; and accommodates the more than 22,000 cases referred to the CVM each year.

The Centennial Biomedical Campus will emphasize partnerships that work to bring academia, government and industry together. The focus of this campus is on biomedical applications, both to animals and humans. It will provide opportunities for industry and govern­ment researchers, entrepreneurs, clinical trial compa­nies, as well as collaborations with other universities to work side by side with faculty and students at the Col­lege of Veterinary Medicine.
