Food Animal Club

The Food Animal Club is one of the largest organizations within the College of Veterinary Medicine community! They host weekly 7am Friday morning meetings in the VMC auditorium (located just inside the student entrance on the east side of the hospital - directly above the Subway) with guest speakers talking on a wide variety of food animal topics. In addition, they are also trying to set up as many wet lab and social opportunities that they can for members throughout the year. This is an excellent way for those interested in pursuing veterinary school to start to get involved with the food animal faculty and current students!

Weekly Club Business:

Dues are $15/year for undergraduate members. This includes weekly breakfast every Friday morning, wet labs, socials, and being able to socially network. Dues can be paid through Venmo (@OSU-FoodAnimalClub), cash, or check. You are welcome to pay your dues at Friday morning breakfast lectures.
