a social level, the AVS organizes one event per term each academic
year, which circulate around each of the UK and Ireland Vet Schools.
Sports Weekend - This is a huge gathering and includes inter-college
sports and general drinking and partying. The sports weekend is
an informal occasion - not for the fainthearted!!! The AVS Committee
holds a full meeting at this event.
AVS Congress and AGM - Exchange the sports events above for a series
of light-hearted talks and a debate on an important issue of the
day. Previous topics have included 'The Relevance of Veterinary
Education' and 'Animal Transplantation'. There is also a formal
black tie ball on the Saturday evening.
Riding Weekend - A slightly (but not much more!) serious event.
It is an inter-college riding competition and most people attend
to compete. However, it is always good to have supporters present
and also to join in the evening social events.
May the AVS Committee meet for the last time of the academic year
to discuss and finalise any AVS business and student issues before
going away for the summer months. Click here to find out more about
not all about the sports weekend....
