New Magruder Sign Pokes Fun at U of O

November 25th, 2013

VTHsignDr. Keith Poulsen, Large Animal Clinician at the Veterinary Teaching Hospital, saw the dozens of tailgater tents jamming the parking lot across from Magruder Hall on game day and had a great idea: Put up a big banner promoting hospital services. The VTH marketing team was all over that; you can’t beat free advertising to a captive audience.

Dr. Ron Mandsager designed the banner and Dr. Helio de Morais suggested the addition of a good natured jab at OSU’s rival Oregon Ducks: The sign reads ‘Expert care for large & small animals  . . . except ducks!’

The CVM maintenance crew, Ryan Mitchell, Steve Lehto, and Cory Lehto, built a frame and figured out how to attach the 4 foot by 20 foot banner. Now they install it on the front lawn of Magurder the day before every home game.
