Summer Plans

Posted by prevetclub on April 24, 2012 at 1:45 PM Comments comments (2)

Is anyone doing any exciting animal or vet related things this summer?! I think we should all share our plans, so we can be excited for each other, and it could give those without plans ideas of what to look for, or ideas of what we would like to do next summer.


At the start of my summer, I'm going to Scotland for a 4 week equine program. I will not only be taking riding lessons, but two college classes: Equine Anatomy & Physiology and Equine Fitness. Sadly, I could not get the credits transferred to Gettysburg, because the classes are not similar to anything we have here, but that's okay, because I can still send the transcript saying I took the classes to vet schools and will learn a ton of cool information! I will be starting a blog when I go with updates on everything I'm doing and interesting things I've learned, so I will post the link to that on here later if anyone is interested in following that. (I added a link for this program in the Resources section if anyone is interested in it for next summer)

Once I get home, I'll be riding along with my equine vet for a few days a week. I might also try to come in a few times to my local small animal hospital, but that has yet to be set up. I also plan on volunteering at my local SPCA and at an amazing thereputic riding organization called Special Equestrians ( - check it out if you live near Warrington, PA!). 

My free time will be spent riding my horse, hanging out with friends, and going to the beach. Needless to say, I'm pretty excited about this summer. Just need to get through exams!

Please comment on this and let us all know what your exciting plans are!

Get Acquainted Day

Thanks to those of you who volunteered to help make the day a success! We had the chance to meet a lot of really interested, involved and dedicated students, some of whom have already decided to make G-burg their home for the next few years. We are excited to see them in the fall and to welcome them to the pre-vet club family! We are in the process of planning for next year already- it looks like it's gonna be fun, and we can't wait to see what our members (new and old) bring to the table in the new year.


New Officers!

Congrats to our new officers, and thank you to the rest of our members for a wonderful semester! Hoping to see a lot of new (and old) faces in the fall, and looking forward to things to come!
