Halls:

This dynamic community provides an opportunity to network with peers with similar interests and goals. Faculty and staff members, as well as other students from the College of Pharmacy, provide special pro­gramming and activities to help residents make early connec­tions with people in their field. The community is open to new and returning students.

“I enjoy getting to know people from my own major! We all have similar classes, and it is great having someone right in my hall if I have a question about classes (instant study buddies).”
