Eastern Florida State College


Hello Everyone!

The Fall term is here and, even though the weather is cooling off , classes and activities are heating up! Our Vet Tech Club continues to be one of the more active and enthusiastic clubs on campus!

The new freshmen class has settled into the program and club activities nicely.  Sophomores are getting ready to graduate in December and are actively preparing for the VTNE. Submersed in class, we as future veterinary technicians have not forgotten one of the most important things in our chosen field: client education. We have continued to promote client education on campus through a series of bulletin boards promoting awareness on topics like dental care, emergency treatments, and hurricane preparations.

Other activities worth noting in which we are participating or have participated 


  • Class has officially begun for Fall 2013. There are now 39 students enrolled in the veterinary technician program. 24 enrolled students are active club members and complimentary FVTA members. There are 4 students set to graduate this December in the club (10 students including non-club members).


  • We made and delivered our annual 9-11 baskets for our local (50+) canine officers and their handlers.
  • We will be participating in one of the Central Brevard Humane Society’s biggest fundraisers of the year, Paws at the Pier and make sure our four-legged friends stay well hydrated.
  • We anticipate having an educational display at the Humane Society’s Paws at the Park event October 26.

October:  Commemorate National Vet Tech Week

  • Students are planning to travel to the University of Florida School of Veterinary Medicine to attend the annual Vet Tech conference- attend lectures, participate in a variety of wet labs and tour the facility.
  • We will be recording several public service announcements to air on the radio to promote client education on topics like heartworm prevention, flea and tick control, microchipping, and Care Credit.


  •  This year, we are planning our annual club trip to be at Disney’s Animal Kingdom. Here, we will be going on a behind the scenes tour and have the opportunity to network with potential future colleagues and employers.


  • Graduation time is here! Good luck to all my fellow graduates and future veterinary technicians.
