After the initial pre-pharmacy years (freshman and sophomore years) balancing coursework alongside rotations in the first professional year (Professional year 1 or the equivalent of junior year) can be challenging but students do have time to enjoy sports and personally fulfilling extra curricular activities. Classes and faculty become family and there are plenty of opportunities for clubs, community events, and socials that add variety and depth to the experience. Our location close to Boston, New York and Providence also allows for easy excursions off campus.
The rewards of being a part of our program are many. School of Pharmacy staff and faculty work closely with students every step of the way. Helping you to an education that leads to rewarding work after graduation is our goal.
