General Information

We are a student organization on the UGA campus whose members are interested in veterinary medicine (and gaining admission into Vet School). Our organization meets every other week and all UGA students, faculty, and staff are welcome to join. Our club activities aim to enhance knowledge and experience within the veterinary medicine field. Club activities include guest speakers, volunteer activities, philanthropic events, and field trips. We also help students prepare for the application process into Vet School. The Pre-Vet Club at the University of Georgia is a great way to meet and work with fellow pre-veterinary students.

We have a Facebook Group! :-) Please add yourself to the Pre-Vet Club at UGA! group.

Meetings
Welcome! The Pre-vet Club meets every other Monday at 7:30PM in the vet school in room H237. There will be food and drinks available before the meeting begins. Click here for the Meetings schedule. Hope to see you there!

Club Dues and Requirements

Dues are $10 per semester and help to cover food and member activities. If you want to become a member of the Pre-Vet Club or already are and haven't paid this semester's dues, you have until the fourth meeting to pay them or you will be removed as a member.

Member Requirements

Remember, in order to be a member you must pay dues, attend 4 of the 7 meetings, participate in at least one member activity, two fundraisers, participate in one group and one individual community service opportunity. As a member, you will have access to the test bank and the List Serv. The top 5 members will be able to participate in a wet lab with a veterinarian at the UGA Vet School at the end of the semester. This is a great opportunity that you don't want to miss out on! The top 8 freshmen get to have a personal tour of the vet school by a 4th year vet student.

NEW POLICY:

We have had too many instances where someone will sign up for a time shift at one of our events and either does not show up or cancels the day of the event. It makes it harder on those who are counting on that person being there and makes the club less productive. So from now on, if you are not able to make it to an event that you signed up to work, you notify Taylor Treen ttreen92@uga.edu 24 hours in advance or find someone to cover your shift. If you do not follow this procedure, you will lose the points that you would have earned.

One of the perks of active membership is access to the club's test bank! Once you've paid your dues, you can contact Michael Pabon prevethist@gmail.com for more information about gaining access. If you have any old test from your classes, please send them to Michael. You will get 3 points per class that you turn in. (Note: You have to turn in all the tests from the class in order to receive full points). For every test you submit, your name will be put in a raffle, and you will be entered for a chance to win a prize at the end of the semester! Paper tests will be converted into digital files and returned to you.
