Veterinary Medicine Class Of XXX: Each incoming class will elect class officers to represent the group for their four years at Vet Med. The officer positions include President/Co-Presidents, Treasurer, Secretary, Curriculum chair, Diversity chair and several other committee chairs

To be an OSU recognized student organization, the officers must register the organization and renew it each year.

How to start (or renew) an Student Organization:

1. Elect officers and find a faculty advisor.
2. Determine SO category (voluntary student organization (VSO) most common)
3. Write a constitution (or ask Dean's office for consitutions to reference)
4. Register via the on-line registration process
5. Once the SO has approval, apply for an MU Student Organization Account. Fund raising activities, sponsorships, and SO dues (if applicable) are deposited into this account. The MU accounting office is the AABC.
