Hello Broad Spectrum folks! Hope everyone is settling back into classes and the excitement of a new semester. Here at Penn we just finished week 1 of our semester after a successful Orientation for our incoming class V'15.
As a fundraiser for the club we bought RAINBOW colored pencils and sold them to 2nd year students to give as gifts for their 1st year mentees (all of 1st year students use colored pencils for anatomy lab 'chalk talks' among other things). We had also made tons of RAINBOW "PENN VET" and "PENN VET Ally" buttons to give away to students, faculty and staff and have encouraged them to wear them on their backpacks, messenger bags, totes, and briefcases or to proudly display them on their office door. These have been a huge hit and we already have a few first year students that are eager to get involved with the club.
We also co-hosted a Welcome Back Potluck Dinner with the Class of 2014 and were able to provide free beer to the event. It was a huge success, with a big turnout and a ton of deliciously prepared goodies from buffalo chicken dip with tortilla chips, tofu salads, pasta salads, yummy cheeses with baguette, finger licking pulled pork, tons of sweets including homemade pies and cookies... whew! DELICIOUS!
