New students were welcomed to the meeting in room 209 of the Biology Earth Science Hall, and discussed t-shirt ideas, details on membership, and upcoming events.

“Through bi-weekly presentations by dentists, specialists, and dental school admissions officers, the Pre-Dental Society enriches members’ understanding of the various aspects of dentistry as well as prepares members for the dental school application process,” stated the official A&M PreDental Society website.
