Student Organizations

The College of Pharmacy offers each professional student a wide variety of pharmacy student organizations through which professional maturation may be enhanced.

Students are strongly encouraged to become actively involved in one or more professional organizations, which provide programs and activities to assist their members in achieving practice excellence and professional growth.

Members have opportunities to participate in community outreach projects and to network with other professionals with interests in their chosen area of study and research.

Life is a series of experiences, and the breadth and depth of these experiences cause us to grow and mature. As has been evidenced in the past, educational experiences are not solely experienced through the pursuit of study in a classroom of higher education, but they also occur in social, work, and extracurricular environments. So it is with pharmacy. The training of a pharmacist, not only to become a good practitioner of pharmacy, but also to become a leader in the community, is derived not only from from the classroom and internship experiences, but also through activity in professional organizations.
