Academic - Vet-Med


We are the graduate student organization that serves the College of Veterinary Medicine. The CVMAGS has several different departments and we recognize that there is no such organization which brings together all students from these departments. We aim to provide a place where all students of CVM can intermingle, exchange ideas, network, and express their concerns that relate to not just their departments, but to CVM as a whole. We also participate in various outreach and volunteer events each throughout the year in the Ames area.


This organization has no affiliations.
