SAVMA Symposium Registration Starts Soon!

Starting November 15th students can begin to register for the upcoming Student AVMA Symposium. This year the Symposium will take place at UC Davis from March 24-26. What better way to spend your spring break than in California at my alma mater? In other words, do it! If you haven't been to Symposium before, talk to other students who have to find out how much fun it can be. Lectures and wetlabs will keep you up to date on important information while the day trips, evening activities and competitions will keep you up to date on how to not be a stressed out vet student!
