AUCVM Open House 2014

AUCVM’s annual Open House on March 29, 2014 was an exciting day for OTS.  This was our first chance to meet the incoming class of 2018!  Megan Hesson and Matt Miller did a wonderful job creating the OTS Blue Book 2014 for the incoming students providing them with a valuable source of information about the college, housing opportunities, and the fraternity.

The night before Open House, we had an ice cream social for the incoming class and their families creating a relaxed atmosphere to answer their questions about OTS and Auburn in general. The ice cream was amazing, and the company was even better!

That Saturday our brothers could be seen throughout the college showing off the many different clubs of AUCVM. We had an OTS booth set up to meet all the guests, and we held a charity bake sale. It was a great success, raising $143.15 for Little H.A.P.I.E. Tree Preschool! The chapter voted, and we are going to add to that donation for a total of $200. Little H.A.P.I.E. Tree is a preschool in Auburn that focuses on developmentally challenged and autistic children. Donations help to keep their doors open during the summer months to continue to provide for these wonderful children.


SAVMA Symposium 2014

March 20th – 22nd 2014, Colorado State University College of Veterinary Medicine hosted SAVMA Symposium 2014! Even though it is quite a trek from Auburn, AL to Fort Collins, CO, Oaties made the trip and had a fabulous time.

Some Oaties took advantage of the day trip to beautiful Copper Mountain Thursday. We have members ranging from experienced skiers/snowboarders to first-timers on the slope. Not everyone enjoyed the skiing/falling, but everyone had fun spending a day with brothers.

Friday and Saturday were filled with exciting informative lectures, including several from Dr. Temple Grandin, the distinguish animal behavior consultant and autism activist. Wetlabs included Banfield Pet Hospital/PetAid Colorado Community Practice Experience, Creating Healthy Weight Feeding Protocols: A Hill’s Nutrition Wetlab, and Equine Acupuncture.

A Budweiser brewing facility was right next door to the convention center, and Symposium happened to coincide with the stay of a team of Budweiser Clydesdales. Several Oaties got to go behind the scenes and meet the Clydesdales standing at an impressive 19 hands!

Night life at SAVMA Symposium included a pub crawl around old town Fort Collins, Casino Royale Night, and the closing banquet Saturday night.
