Halloween Party with Pi

For Halloween this year, OTS hosted a party at our house with Pi chapter! Admission was a small monetary donation or a pet related donation for victims of an apartment fire that happened in Columbus, GA a couple weeks ago. We collected several toys, bags of food, and food bowls along with collecting a total of $75 between donations at the door and a bake sale we did that day at the school!

Pumpkin Carving and Pet Costume Contest

In honor of Fall and Halloween for 4 o’clock club OTS members got dirty and carved up some pumpkins. The pumpkins were then used as decorations for our Halloween party.

In addition we held a costume contest and got to see our pets dressed up as everything from the Flash to Indiana Jones.

A Walk to End Alzheimer’s

Alzheimer's walk

This past Saturday OTS Zeta partnered with Auburn’s SCAVMA chapter to participate in the Walk to End Alzheimer’s event in Auburn. The walk raised a total of $37,151.43, well over their goal of $25,000. It was hosted by Auburn’s Sigma Kappa fraternity, and the OTS/SCAVMA team raised more money than every other team aside from the hosts! Through generous donations from friends and family of members, alumni, and funds raised from SCAVMA’s Tails ‘n Trails 5K in September we were able to raise just over $3,000!!! The money raised will go toward finding a cure for Alzheimer’s disease through the advancement of research, providing care and support for those affected, and through promoting brain health to reduce the risk of dementia. Thank you to everyone who joined the walk and those who made donations, and a huge shout out to Kylye Roberts from the class of 2018 who organized our team!


Dogpatch 2015

OTS recently held Dogpatch our very own continuing education conference at Auburn CVM. This year’s theme was feline medicine and included topics feline alopcia and feline cardiomyopathy as well as 2 hours of Pharmacy law. Those that attended had the opportunity to earn 8 total ours of CE. A portion of the proceeds was donated the the College of Veterinary Medicine’s GM1 research efforts. OTS would like to give special thanks to our amazing presenters: Dr. Robert Kennis, Dr. Eva Abarca, Dr. Sara-Louise Newcomer, Dr. Randal Winter, Dr. Annabel Botsford, Dr. Jacob Barnoski, Dr. Byron Blagburn, Dr. Sue Duran and Ms. Starr Miller. And a final thank you to Ms. Kris Street who helped us put the whole thing together.

We hope that everyone who attended enjoyed themselves. For those of you who could not attend, we hope to see you next year.


Welcome new members

This Friday OTS Zeta welcomed twelve new brothers to your chapter. After the formal ceremony was the “hat party.” Each new member was provided with a silly hat and a poem to read or rap to the group. Family and significant others were invited to join us for a potluck dinner after initiation.

Join me in welcoming our newest members, it’ll be a great year and we can’t wait to get to know you guys better.


Sips ‘n Strokes

This Friday OTS held a Sips ‘n Strokes party. Amy Sheil, our social chair, lead the group as we painted a landscape of a tree. Not everyone followed the directions, but everyone drew an amazing painting. It was a great way to unwind and relax after a rough week of exams and quizzes.
