The Pre-Veterinary Society is a student-run organization dedicated to offering its members new perspectives on the veterinary profession and advice to optimize chances of gaining admission to veterinary school. The society is an excellent resource for freshmen and sophomores who want a broader perspective on veterinary medicine, and we provide supportive services to junior and seniors that are in the application process.
Meetings are held in 146 Morrison Hall. Emails specifying exact times and locations are sent out prior to all meetings held. Please send an email to Prevetcu@gmail.com to receive instructions on joining the listserv. Meetings normally last for no more than one hour, and usually take place the first Thursday of every month at 5:00pm; however, there may be changes, so new members should email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information as to when/where meetings are.
If you are interested in joining, dues for each member are $6 per semester!
Join the facebook group at https://www.facebook.com/groups/189723554380279/ to find out more and receive meeting notices.
Feel free to contact the officers with any suggestions that you may have to make the meetings more enjoyable, or applicable to your interests.
Remember, in order to be a member of the Pre-Vet Society, you MUST attend 3/4 of the meetings. HOWEVER, if you have a conflict, meetings can be made up by participating in other Pre-Vet Society sanctioned events, fundraisers and field trips, or by attending make-up meetings. Please email Prevetcu@gmail.com for details, and keep an eye out for emails about events that qualify for meeting attendance.
