Welcome!Our next meeting will be TBA 7:30 in Room H237 of the UGA Vet School. (The entrance along Agriculture Drive, first main door from Carlton Street --not the one with pillars-- large auditorium immediately to the left when you first walk in). As always, we will be having a guest speaker and free food! :)

Here are the minutes for the last meeting:
Thanks for coming to the last Pre-Vet Club meeting of the semester! We still have a few more events left that you won't want to miss.
Santa Paws Join us for a Christmas party at the OTS house on Thursday, Dec. 4, from 6:30-8:30! This members activity will be a great chance to hang out with your fellow pre-vetters, as well as vet students. Pets are welcome! If you would like to, you can pay to have their pictures taken with Santa. This would count as fundraising points for the club. Sign up here if you would like to come: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1-vUHUscfT9OznWucDhR0A6kjZvfaUihU07nd0aafPec/edit?usp=docslist_api The address is 205 Burnett Street. We hope to see you there!
Terrapin Fundraiser Mark your calendars: our Terrapin fundraiser will be on Saturday, Jan. 17! Remember that you will be able to purchase long-sleeve t-shirts and Terrapin glasses at this event. We hope you will come out and support the Athens Area Humane Society!
Pets for Life In case you missed out on this opportunity the first time, the Pre-Vet Club is participating in another Pets for Life event on Saturday, Dec. 6 from 7:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. Not only will you receive community service points for the club, but you will gain valuable hands-on animal experience that will be useful for vet school. Please sign up for this event ONLY if you are certain that you can participate; Amanda needs to give an accurate head-count to the coordinator as soon as possible, and it looks bad when fewer people show up than were expected! Here is the sign-up sheet: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/15YtgZTY3lN0zOvDnDDy1HNdeMedp-vHQCI82PQb_m4Q/edit?usp=sharing
Bear Hollow Holiday Lights From Dec. 11 to Dec. 14, 5:30-7:30 p.m., Bear Hollow Zoo will be having a Christmas event, and they need your help! Volunteers are needed to help sell hot chocolate, make s'mores, run arts and crafts booths, and more. Bear Hollow would be nothing without its dedicated volunteers, so we hope you will pitch in and help make this event a success for them. Doing so will count as a community service activity.
Point Tally PLEASE review your points here:
https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1OxoyThnpEEifk0ZoCTadqnjxUfZ8ukaPGfLzHed_ycQ/edit#gid=0 If you see any mistakes, please notify the officer who was in charge of the event in question. All of the officers’ email addresses can be found on our website (pre-vet.uga.edu). Soon we will announce the top members who will participate in a wet lab in December, so verify that your points are listed correctly. This announcement will be made over the listserv, so watch your email!
Study Groups If you would like to sign up for a study group and still have not, you can do that here: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0AiiD3F8W-2iodGFIbU5yNWRxbWpVcEU2VWFzY3RYZkE&usp=drive_web#gid=0 For those of you who have already signed up, please follow the link to see who else has signed up in your classes. That way you can get in touch with each other and start studying together!
Athens Pet Food Bank If you would still like to donate dry dog or cat food, you can do so by dropping it off in the bins in the front lobby of the vet school (the doors you enter to come to our meetings). Donations are being accepted until December 1st, and the doors to the vet school stay unlocked until 5 p.m. Be sure to write your name on any pet food you donate so that you can receive your community service points!
AAHS Pet Care Clinic Six lucky volunteers will have the opportunity to help out at Pet Supplies Plus with the pet care clinic on Dec. 6 from 1-4 p.m. Keep in mind that this is the same day as the Pets for Life event... so don't sign up for both! We are using a Google doc sign-up to be as fair as possible, so the first six people to sign up get to participate! https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1j67n866PyNfhtNLY-G3a7_BhSN3ozWro7SZlCkPyunA/edit?usp=sharing
AAHS Pet Photos with Santa On Friday, Dec. 5, from 2-8 p.m., you can bring your pets to Pet Supplies Plus on Alps Rd. to have their pictures taken with Santa!
