Thanks to everyone who came out to our final events of the Spring 2013 semester! After having great speakers and trips throughout the Spring, we wrapped things up by taking part in Tufts’ Relay for Life and by going whale watching. Stay tuned to find out the date of our end of semester General Meeting!
Wednesday, February 27, 4:30PM
The assistant director of admissions for the Tufts Veterinary School, Ford Barnett, will be the giving a presentation on general preparation for vet school, the admissions process, and the Early Assurance Program. Pre-Health Advisors, Stephanie Ripley and Carol Baffi-Dugan, will also be there to speak with any students entering the regular application process for veterinary school in 2013.

The Pre-Vet Society is taking a behind the scenes tour of the Boston Aquarium. Not only will it be a lot of fun, but it offers a look into one of the many options in the veterinary field! If you were interested, but aren’t signed up don’t worry, we’re considering doing another tour coinciding with our whale watching trip in April so be sure to let us know you’re interested!
Wednesday, March 27, 12:00 (open block)
Our second speaker of the year, the Tufts University Research Veterinarian for the Medford/Somerville Campus, will be coming after spring break. Once again this is a speaker who will talk about a less traditional career in Veterinary medicine and should have many interesting things to say. More details will be made known as we get closer to March.
Also, in early April, Public Health at Tufts (PHAT) hosts Healthy Week! Be sure to look for the Pre-Vet Society at the event!
Dr. Lisa Freeman, the Tufts Cummings Veterinary School’s own pet nutritionist, will be giving a talk this Wednesday, February 20th from 12-1 pm in the Crane Room in Paige Hall!
