Organizations and Clubs


Explore, create, lead, organize, have fun, rejuvenate your mind and body …
you can do all of this and much more by participating in any of dozens of CVM student activities and organizations. Student clubs and organizations provide a full spectrum of activities -- some that are social and recreational; others that delve into the handling and treatment of specific animal species. Get involved in student chapters affiliated with professional veterinary organizations and you will:
  • explore wide-ranging career possibilities
  • learn from and meet national and international leaders in veterinary medicine
  • hear about current issues and trends, nationally and globally
  • participate in hands-on wet labs and community outreach


In addition, CVM student representatives serve on the College of Veterinary Medicine's standing committees to provide a policy-making voice and to share student perspectives on issues and operations throughout the College. These committees include curriculum, animal welfare, student-faculty relations, international, safety, and others.
For information about various student organizations including the Pre-Veterinary Club and College of Veterinary Medicine Clubs visit the Student Organizations Website.
To venture into the world of non-veterinary experiences, the ISU Student Activities Center  and Recreation Services is a resource for hundreds of special interest, multicultural, community or recreational clubs and activities.
