Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did. So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.

This semester, the Carroll Anthrozoology Department offered a course specifically for veteran students. The class, ANZ-289-All Things K-9, focuses on the elements necessary in order to successfully train a service dog for other veterans with physical and mental disabilities. Students who have participated in the course have formed lasting friendships with each other, the instructor, Tom Brownlee and find the course to be very rewarding. Please contact the Anthrozoology Department, at (406) 447-4329 for more information.
