SEECA GroupSEECA is a student organization that was formed for students with an interest in exotic and companion animals. The organization provides an opportunity for students with an interest in companion, exotic, or zoo animals to become acquainted with one another and to improve the knowledge and understanding of these animals. The club does this through inviting speakers involved in a variety of fields related to exotic and companion animals to speak at regular meetings. In addition, the organization seeks to increase the awareness of companion and exotic animals on campus and within the community. The students look for opportunities to volunteer and to aid service groups related to companion animals. SEECA received recognized student organization status in May 2008.

Our meetings are held on the first Tuesday of the month at 7:00 p.m. in the East Campus Union. We try to make all of the meetings fun for everyone. We bring in a speaker to each of our meetings who talk to us about some area of the companion or exotic animal field. Past speakers include a representative from Husker Cats, a local emergency veterinarian and an officer from Animal Control here in Lincoln. SEECA plans a yearly trip that visits interesting animal attractions around the Midwest. These trips allow all new members to be able to get to know current members in a more welcoming atmosphere.

SEECA Dog Training

We put on our first training class in the Spring of 2009. Jill Morstad comes out and is the trainer in charge of the dogs while the club members assist and observe the various techniques. Our first class was a Canine Good Citizenship (CGC) class where it prepared the dogs to be tested at the end of the 8 week class for their CGC. We plan on offering this class ever Spring and in the Fall offering a basic obedience class. All classes are limited to 10 dog/handler teams due to our limited amount of space. We hold the classes in the Animal Science Building and days and times are announced prior to the class date. We have a lot of fun with these classes and hope to continue with these classes in the future with more college age students and faculty. Our goal with these classes is to provide a way to educate the university community on proper dog handling and training.
