West Lafayette, Ind. — Purdue University's School of Veterinary Medicine is increasing enrollment in response to projections of a veterinarian shortage in the coming years.

The college will increase its class size by 20 percent, from 70 to 84 students, starting with the class of 2015, which will begin classes this fall. Some classroom spaces will have to be modified to handle the increased number of students, and laboratory courses will be offered in sections, Purdue says. The admission process will not be changed because of the enrollment increase.
