On the morning of the 12th of March 2019, you could possibly hear a cry of great pain being emitted from the University of Edinburgh Small Animal Hospital.
What was the cause of this pain and anguish you ask? It was the Final Year Vet Students finding out that they missed their last Big Cheese without even a chance to say goodbye to the sticky VK-esque dance floor and ciao to our favourite long haired DJ.
But why is this such a big deal? Brie runs through our veins, camembert beats from our heart and our liver processes wensleydale like there's no tomorrow.
It is a long held tradition that once a year, at the end of April, past Dick Vet Students from all over the world return to their true hometown of Edinburgh to celebrate that they can indeed vet and inspire the younger generation that they also can vet as well. Every year, we march through the (yes slightly quiet) doors of Potterow and dance the night away whilst becoming inspired from our elders that if they, these tequila shotting, VK drinking vets can save the lives of animals day in day out then we the poor humble lost students can do so too! Without The Big Cheese to guide us through this one night of celebration and glory what will become of the Dick Vet graduates?? So we are asking you, no, pleading you, The GREAT Cheese to open your doors for one night only so current students and fellow alumni as well as every other student out there needing a good stress-relief boogie to open your doors for this night! The night in question is Saturday the 27th of April 2019.
Any cheese-goers that also feel this sentiment please sign this petition in support of this important matter.
Also, if you're feeling extra generous, please do reopen your doors throughout exam season as I know many a vet and student alike are craving the cheesy beats to help them dance their exam woes away!
Answer our prayers with the sick beats of 'Reach' and 'The Circle of Life'.
Thank you for your time,
Your desperate, currently dairy-free, Final Year Vet Student
