For anyone dealing with the stressful summer internship process and looking for ways to gain experience in veterinary medicine, take a look at the Safari4u Veterinary Program, a veterinary volunteer program in South Africa. The program is a once-in-a-lifetime experience, offering volunteers opportunities to work with large, small, and exotic animals, explore various fields in veterinary medicine, gain clinical skills that are difficult to practice in the U.S., help animals in disadvantaged communities, and travel to an exotic country. For more information, check out Safari4u’s website (www.safari4uvet.com) and Facebook page (www.facebook.com/safari4uvet)!

As we all know, paying for graduate school can be difficult and stressful. The US Army and Navy offers a Health Professions Scholarship, which pays for 100% of tuition, fees, books, and provides a monthly stipend, in exchange for service in a branch of the armed forces. If you’re at all interested in this great opportunity, check out the info session this Tuesday, October 14th, from 7 to 8 PM in Pearson 104! This event is co-sponsored by the Pre-Vet, Pre-Med, and Pre-Dental Societies, and should be an informative presentation. Hope to see you there! View the attached flyer for more info!
