CHIP was a great way for me to get outside the Veterinary School and meet other students. It also allowed me to introduce my profession to them: I'll never forget the wide eyes of the medical students when they saw the 2-ton hoist in our large animal induction and surgical preparation area.

Looking to meet students from other colleges? CHIP can help. From our fall open house to stress-buster finals parties, we sponsor events that will help you build a broader social network. And connecting with students outside of your own program will give you a whole new perspective on health care.
Take part in our noontime lectures, experiential education activities, weekend retreats, and field trips all organized by students, for students. You'll enhance what you learn in class, discover how to work as part of a team, and learn about other students' programs at the same time.
Join us as we reach out to others. Our varied service activities have included the American Cancer Society's Relay for Life, a pet food drive for animal shelters, and preparation of care packages for newly diagnosed breast cancer patients.
