Students from Oklahoma State University College of Veterinary Medicine recently participated in OSU’s Into the Streets program. The group of first, second, third and fourth year veterinary students spent several hours on a Saturday morning helping citizens in the community with outdoor projects that they were not able to complete on their own.

“Our students were in charge of weeding, cleaning out flower beds and raking leaves,” said Kim Kern, president of the Student American Veterinary Medical Association chapter and Internal Medicine and Emergency Critical Care Services club senior wet lab coordinator. “We had a great time and hope to continue serving the community in the future.”

Into the Streets at Oklahoma State University is one day of meaningful service once a semester that gives students the opportunity to serve in a fun, exciting group environment as they strive to give back to their community and the city of Stillwater.
