Vendor Fair

By | Events | No Comments

by Nicole Goettemoeller

This year we had a record showing at our annual Vendor Fair held at the Ohio Union Archie Griffin Ballroom. We had well over 300 students show up to visit with 42 vendors and enjoy free food provided by ASDA. We signed up around 60 new members from the D1 class and handed out welcome gifts of sanding blocks, ASDA badge clips, and jump drives. The students mingled while gathering free toothpaste and water bottles and the evening ended with our annual raffle. This year we received lots of gift cards, 3 electric toothbrushes, 2 $500 scholarships, and many other prizes donated by our vendors, as well as 2 Ipads and gift cards provided by our ASDA chapter. Overall it was a great fundraiser for our ASDA chapter and it allowed us to meet the new class of D1s and get them excited for what ASDA can do for them.

Annual ASDA Bar Crawl

By | Events | No Comments

We welcomed everyone back to school with our Annual ASDA Bar Crawl this past Saturday. We’ve held the bar crawl fundraiser two years in a row now, and both years have had big showings from our students, especially the new D1’s! Each class wore a different color wrist band to aid in starting conversations across classes. Starting at Ethyl & Tank on 13th, we made our way down High Street stopping first at Midway for some great deals on drinks. D1’s, D2’s, D3’s, and D4’s then made their way to Big Bar for some fun on the rooftop bar. Ugly Tuna’s was next on the list and kept the party going. The crawl ended with a short stop at Lucky’s Stout House before finishing up at Village Idiot. It was great to kick off to the fall semester with such a successful event, and we’re looking forward to getting the new D1’s involved in ASDA!

"ASDA has been a great experience for me and I am glad I joined as a D1 because I've had the opportunity to learn a lot about the issues that face dentistry and how I can get involved to make an impact. I have also been able to meet a lot of upperclassmen and network."

− Urvi Shukla, D3

"Why am I glad I joined ASDA? Because of all of the great connections I have made with other dental students across the country as well as with dentists across Ohio. Most of all, I'm glad I joined because I know I'm doing my part to help maintain the integrity of my future profession."
