Academics: The AOI program is great, and there is lots of help available for every area of study. Popular study areas are the library and the Cline Atrium for pharmacy and health science students.

4 College Freshman

Academics: It is extremely demanding to be in the pharmacy program. I'm in that, I have a music minor and an on-campus job. I don't have much free time so my workload is very full. Most of my days go 8-5 without breaks. However I still find time for a professional fraternity and a sorority.

5 College Sophomore
