Hundreds of Pierce College students were attracted to campus walkway for Club Rush, which was organized and supported by Associated Students Organization (ASO) from 10 a.m. to 1p.m. Oct. 11 and 12.
“It was very successful,” said Artur Shmukler, the president of ASO Club Council.”We have lots of clubs. They got lots of support and new members signed up.”
The star attraction was from the exhibition, which was co-hosted by Registered Veterinary Technician (RVT) and Pre-Veterinary Medicine and Veterinary Technology (Pre-Vet) clubs.
They brought out two 3-week-old pigmy goats with their mom, two beagles, Bitsy and Velvet. “We had a wonderful turnout on each day,” said Andrew Mouser, one of the activity organizers of RVT and Pre-Vet clubs. They introduced students about RVT program and what was happening on animal science areas of Pierce.
About 75 students went to their club tables. “I was surprised to find out that the majority of the students attending Pierce had no knowledge of what we were doing in the animal science areas of Pierce,” said Mouser. “Likewise, the students were surprised to find out about our animal science programs and the animals that are part of their college.”
Pierce was founded in 1947 as an agricultural college.
Its RVT program is on the top through the nation and Pre-Vet program has one of the highest acceptance rates to veterinarian schools, even compared with full four-year programs.”We were able to show other students the programs that created emt stethoscope reviews pierce College and that they are still going strong,” said Mouser. “This is something we are very proud of and love to show off as much as possible.” RVT also has Dog Wash on Oct. 15 and will have vaccination clinic at the rate of $10 for dogs and cats on Nov. 19 10:00 a.m. to 1:00p.m.
Other clubs also achieved their goals on Club Day. Usually, this kind of event will take place twice a year, in the spring and fall semesters.
