How did the Life Science Club on Snow College campus come to be called the Dead Cats Society?

The obvious reference is to the Robin William’s movie Dead Poets Society. But on deeper investigation it turns out that the name is actually in honor of those who have given so much that we might learn, according the the club’s constitution.

Founded in 1990, the Dead Cats Society strives to enable students in the life sciences to experience the fields that they are going into, provide leadership opportunities, and promote service in the community.

The Dead Cats Society website explains that their goals are to have fun learning activities, give service, help students learn about careers by helping them spend time with professionals, recycle, and they also have pre-professional groups based around specific fields such as pre-med, dental, and nursing. They do that by having professionals from those fields give presentations to the students in order to better educate them.

On November 30, Professor Gordillo gave a presentation on the tomato and a closing social will be held in December.

Previously in the semester, Dr. Cummings, a local eye doctor, presented on optometry, also, Greg Rowley a physical therapist presented.

The Dead Cats’ Society is an club that has much to offer to its members. For more information, contact Dr. Paul Gardner at paul.gardner@snow.edu.
