A great event where, similar to AVS Sports Weekend, all the vet schools get together but this time there is no attempt at sports, instead a chance to learn during the day, and a Congress Ball that is the highlight of the night.
AVS Sports Weekend
An absolutely cracking weekend!!!! Full of pub crawls, befriending other vet students from across the UK, and loads of crude chanting. WE LOVE YOU GLASGOW!
Oh, and apparently some 'sports' also occur at some point.
Don yer finest kilts ye lads, lassies dress to the nines, force down ye sheep's stomachs and get ready for dances that'll bruise yer body worse than a peach rolling down an ol' flight o' stairs.
Okay, this time we DO play sports.
It's Glasgow vs. THEM. (The Edinburgh 'Royal Dick' Vets... Yep, that's the name of their school). We always win! Even when we don't... With sports ranging from rugby to netball to ultimate frisbee, its a ton of fun and all to play for!
This is where things get real. Love it or hate it, get ready to be swept up in election fever. Facebook is no longer a safe place, neither are the walls or doors of Vet School as the faces of those thirsty for your votes cover them in poster-form. Politics has never been so good!
Its time to send the Final Years off in true Vet School Style - they have after all survived their way through it! They do their Raft Race across the Kelvin during the day then descend on a marquee in the grounds of Vet School with a BBQ put on by GUVMA and a DJ to ensure everyone dances the night away!
The first official vet school event to welcome the vet and biovets into the family. This is a chance for freshers to meet the people they're going to work/play/suffer with for the next 4 (if you're a biovet) or 5 years......or 6+ years if you enjoy going out too much!
Don't just study all day, join an organization! The GUVMA Freshers Fayre is a cultural smorgasbord of sports teams, associations, clubs, non-profits, and societies that want YOUR membership. Whether you want to join a sports team or have a go at knitting or polo, or you have an interest in exotics/zoo medicine - there's a group for everyone!
Mr. Vet School
Get ready to ask questions like 'How did he get into that dress and do a split?' and 'Why is this happening?' as plucky male contenders from across the vet school compete in our own 'Beauty Pageant'. The best, worst, and most confusing thing you will see all year.
Rodeo Day and After Party Ceilidh
The GUVMA Rodeo is an annual family event run entirely by a
committee of vet students. The Rodeo raises much needed funds for charities and promotes public awareness of animal welfare
When else can you ride the subway in a cowboy hat and raise money for charity simultaneously? Attempt to get around the whole circuit without being chucked off and (if you can). Win the ultimate prize by selling the most raffle tickets to the punters you meet along the way! Get excited!
Vet School Revue
You thought your embarrassing deeds would be kept a secret by your loyal and trustworthy friends? 'Fraid not son. Buckle up for an hour of naming and shaming as the Revue reveals all in dramatic and musical form.
The GUVMA social reps work to put on tons of socials throughout the year! Vet Ball, Rodeo, and the Welcome Back Ceilidh are just a few examples of fun to come. The Glasgow Vet Community is resilient and looking to this coming year with optimism. Virtual talks and socials will continue but hopefully we can hold more in person events.
