Delaware Valley University Pre-Veterinary Club Wins Community Service Award
2018 Mar 30
A group of ten members of the Delaware Valley University Pre-Veterinary Club traveled with the club advisor, Dr. Pamela Reed, to Auburn University to attend the American Pre-Veterinary Medical Association (APVMA) annual symposium from March 23 to March 24. At the event, the Club was recognized with an Outstanding Club Community Service Award.
The Pre-Veterinary Club's community service activities included organizing a campus-wide event to help victims of hurricanes and other natural disasters, volunteering at a local animal shelter throughout the year, and participating in various other campus events.
The students visited the Montgomery Zoo as a pre-symposium trip. They then participated in a Friday night event of painting barrels to be donated to a local animal shelter. On Saturday, they attended various lectures and wet labs in areas related to veterinary medicine as well as veterinary school and the application process.
Students also had the chance to network with admissions representatives from several veterinary schools in the U.S and abroad and meet with an American Association of Veterinary Medical Colleges representative. They also learned about various internship and job opportunities from employer representatives.
