Student Relations

The Student Relations Committee of the GVMA works to promote the importance of organized veterinary medicine to current students at the University of Georgia College of Veterinary Medicine. If you are interested in getting involved with any of these programs, contact the GVMA.

  • White Coat Ceremony - Present new students with their very first white coat embroidered with the GVMA name and logo during a ceremony with friends and family.
  • UGA Back to School Barbecue - Welcome all veterinary students to Athens during the first week of classes with hamburgers and hotdogs. 
  • Career Dinner Meetings - held throughout the year, various panel discussions with students with topics ranging from negotiating contracts, legal issues, to life/work balance. These topics are at the request of the GVMA Student Chapter at UGA CVM.
