Spring 2016 Club Activities and Meetings


Club Activities Spring 2016 Semester!

The Pre-Vet Club is going to try a new "Participation Point" System this semester! Club members will gain a point for each event and meeting they attend and participate in. At the end of the semester, the members with the greatest number of participation points will get a prize! We have many activities this semester! 2 Bake Sales, a Supply Drive, the Pie a Professor event, 3 Open Houses, and the Marion County Humane Society Volunteer Day. Get involved! Get points! And, remember, volunteer work, Club activity, and campus service look great on a resume and when applying to vet school! Please contact the Club secretary (Ana Smith, E-mail ) to sign up for participating in one or many of these events!

Our first Club meeting was held on Thursday Jan 28th at 4:45 pm in LSF 207. We discussed our schedule for the semester and what activities we want to hold. Click HERE for meeting minutes.

You can contact Ana Smith (E-mail club secretary) to let her know what items you can bring and/or when you can help out at the table. Even if you can only sit at the table for 30 min it helps.
