The first edition of the Cenobium yearbook includes the following:
“CENOBIUM (se-no ‘ be-um) (GR. KOINOBIOS – living in communion with others) – A colony of independent cells or organisms held together by a common investment.”
With that theme, the Cenobium began publication in 1977 and continued through 1990. Produced by students, the yearbooks are a chronicle of the daily life and the special events experienced by veterinary students at the LSU School of Veterinary Medicine.
