Welcome!Our next meeting will be Monday, January 26th at 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:
Welcome to a brand new semester of Pre-Vet Club! We were happy to see so many returning members at Monday's meeting, as well as new faces!
Food at Meetings Our first order of business Monday evening was regarding the food we provide at every meeting. Since our club has grown so much and the club's funds are extremely limited, we are no longer able to provide dinner at every meeting. Consequently, we put it up to a vote at the meeting. The options were to increase dues to allow for pizza at every meeting OR to keep dues the same but only have snacks. The club voted for the latter option, so from now on light snacks will be provided at meetings, instead of a meal like pizza or pasta.
Active Member Requirements In case you are new to Pre-Vet Club or just need a refresher, here is an overview of the semester requirements to be considered an active member:
1) Pay dues ($10)
2) Attend 4 of 7 meetings
3) Participate in one member activity
4) Participate in Dawg Jog and one additional fundraiser
5) Participate in one group or individual community service opportunity
Keep in mind that these are minimal requirements - the more you put into the club, the more you will get out of it! In addition, at the end of the semester the members who have earned the most points will get to participate in a wet lab with one of the veterinarians at the vet school. The top freshmen will get to go on a tour of the NEW vet school, led by a senior - excuse me, "fourth-year" vet student.
Point Tally We have a brand-new points Google doc for spring semester! You can track your points here: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1_CddMTXF7PBz14kQDrnCsC7IdoZDDzgwGAIcORrP6ec/edit#gid=0. If Monday night was your first meeting, your name has already been added!
AAHS Item of the Month is paper towels. If you bring them in at the next meeting, you will receive community service points.
Gym Dawgs Meet Our first members activity of the semester is the Gym Dawgs Meet vs. Kentucky! It will be on Saturday, Jan. 24 at 4:00. This event is FREE for UGA students!

Terrapin Fundraiser This is one of our biggest fundraisers of the year, and it is right around the corner! This Saturday, Jan. 17 from 4:30-7:30, Pre-Vet Club will be at Terrapin Brewery raising money for the Athens Area Humane Society, our philanthropy. You can buy a commemorative glass at the event for $12, and long-sleeved t-shirts will be available for $15. Both will sell out quickly, so arrive early if you wish to purchase a glass and/or a t-shirt! There will also be live music and PUPPIES at the event. You do not have to be 21 years old to attend, just to drink. You can receive either fundraising or members activity points for participating.
Pet Care Clinic On Feb. 7 from 1-4, you have the opportunity to assist with a vaccine clinic at Pet Supplies Plus! The first six people to sign up will get to participate, and then if anyone cancels we will continue down the list.
