Sacred Heart’s Pre-Veterinary Club is a club for those who wish to make it into veterinary school or who simply like animals. Students get information about the preparation of and application to veterinary school. They can also connect with others who are applying. Other important aspects of this club besides preparing for veterinary school include fundraising, volunteering and trips to various animal-related locations.
“Although the SHU Veterinary Club is directed more towards this field of interest, it is open to any interested student. Anyone who joins the club has an opportunity to volunteer with animals, it is not just for those who are pre vet. With regards to the pre veterinary track, much information is offered to our members. We ensure that students are taking the proper classes to fulfill veterinary school admission requirements and get enough volunteering in. Experience is very important. We work with Beardsley Zoo, which offers internship opportunities during Sophomore year. This is a great addition to resumes.” – Sofia Brotto Class of 2023
