This vibrant community provides a unique opportunity for networking and engagement with peers, faculty and staff from the College of Pharmacy. During their experience in the Pharmacy Learning Community, students will learn more about the dynamic field of Pharmacy and explore many aspects such as research and clinical practice.

“The Pharmacy Learning Community made attending a really large school like The Ohio State University a more personable experience for me. Thanks to living in a learning community, I was able to meet students with a similar course load and career interest as myself. The best part of the Pharmacy Learning Community I found was being able to study with other LC members and help each other out. Beyond that though, I met some of my best friends in college from living in the Pharmacy LC!”

– Riley Evans
