So please join if you are interested and welcome to our pre-vet community!
This APVMA sponsored club allows students interested in veterinary medicine and animal care to get together to discuss important issues regarding veterinary school admissions, animal care topics, animal health, and the political and social aspects regarding these fields. This organization will feature guest speakers and field trips to both local clinics and veterinary school admission offices throughout the year. We will work on standing volunteer, job, and internship opportunities in related fields for students with organizations like shelters and rescues, zoos and aquariums, vet clinics and more. We will fundraiser for local shelters as well as volunteer at local shelters and animal sanctuaries. A trip to the APVMA National Symposium is taken each year in order to listen to lectures from experts in different specialties, and do wet labs which teach important skills needed for those hoping to pursue a career in veterinary medicine.

How does your organization live out the mission of DePaul?
This mission statement embodies the principal purposes of DePaul University. As such it is the nexus between past, present and future; the criterion against which plans are formulated and major decisions made; the bond which unites faculty, students, staff, alumni, and trustees as an academic community. As a university, DePaul pursues the preservation, enrichment, and transmission of knowledge and culture across a broad scope of academic disciplines. It treasures its deep roots in the wisdom nourished in Catholic universities from medieval times. The principal distinguishing marks of the university are its Catholic, Vincentian, and urban character.
