AHSTA is a club for those in the Animal Health Science major, but all majors are welcomed with an interest in animal health and welfare. AHSTA serves as a forum for discussion and a means of dispersing information about the major and potential career opportunities. We also strive to promote the role of the veterinary technician in clinical practice, laboratory animal care, management, sales, etc.
We are active in events sponsored by the College of Agriculture, and we offer great leadership opportunities. We are also a student chapter of the North American Veterinary Technician Association and we sponsor members to attend the annual Western States Veterinary Conference in Las Vegas, NV.
