Here are the minutes for the last meeting:
Thank you for joining us Monday for the second Pre-Vet Club meeting of the semester! In case you couldn't make it, here's what you missed:
Guest Speaker Dr. Rad gave a presentation about the Africa trip she takes pre-vet students on every year, complete with wildebeest, giraffes, adorable cheetah cubs, and more! If you would like more information, her email is firstname.lastname@example.org.
Club Philanthropy It was difficult to choose only one of the four deserving candidates for this year's club philanthropy, but the Athens Area Humane Society received the most votes at yesterday's meeting. The funds we raise this year will be used to benefit this worthy organization.
T-Shirts! Attached to this email is the proof for this year's Pre-Vet Club t-shirt! They are $10 each. A pre-order sign-up sheet will be sent out over the listserv soon, so be on the lookout for that!
Mentor Program Are you new to Pre-Vet Club? Do you wish there was someone to help guide you on your path to vet school? Wish granted! Please fill out the following survey if you are interested in having a mentor or being a mentor: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/JKNPR65 Completion of the survey will help us match you with the best mentor/mentee.
Test Bank As a member of Pre-Vet Club, you have special access to our test bank! This is a great resource to take advantage of, since we are all taking a lot of the same classes. If you have paid your dues, you can email Greer, our historian, who will grant you access to the test bank. She can be reached at email@example.com. If you have not paid your dues ($10), you can see Blakelee, our treasurer, before or after the next meeting to do so.
Potluck Picnic This Sunday from 11-1 p.m., we will be having a potluck picnic at Memorial Park! This counts as a member activity if you attend. For those of you who don't know, Memorial Park is past Five Points if you are driving south on Lumpkin. There will be a sign on the left that says "Memorial Park / Bear Hollow Trail". After the picnic, everyone will get to visit Bear Hollow Zoo! If you have not yet seen the big lovable bear residents of Athens, GA, you are missing out.

South Campus Tailgate On Sept. 20 from 9-12 noon, there will be a tailgate at Conner Hall. All of the clubs will be there, so please help us advertise Pre-Vet Club!
