3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: You don't really get a variety of courses. There are very specific classes you must take for your program and you are only allowed to choose a few electives. You may not even get the elective you want as the registration process is horrible. You have to log in at exactly the right time and hope that the class is still available. They let a lot of people who do sports and are in specific programs register ahead of time so there aren't a lot of open seats left. Class sized are generally around 20-25 people for labs, electives, humanities and english classes. For science lectures they will contain your whole class so somewhere around 150 people. Professors are ok, sometimes you have to teach yourself. This college if an ok college but just be prepared to totally devote your whole life to school work. Very demanding and fast paced.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: If you are in the PharmD program you have to do rotations (kind of like an unpaid internship) for 4 weeks each summer after your first professional year. Your 6th year is made up of 6-6 week rotations at a variety of different pharmacy locations. Many students have jobs before graduation.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: There are little to no campus crimes or sexual assaults on this campus. Public safety is always available if you call them but sometimes it can take a little for them to get to you. There are little blue lights that you can press if you feel unsafe and public safety will speak to you over the speaker there and come to you to walk you home.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The housing is OK at ACPHS. Freshman year I would say has the best housing believe it or not. The room I had in South Hall was pretty big and we had our own bathroom. Which is a big deal because most schools only have a bathroom that the whole hallway shares. Sophomore year housing lottery is SO bad. It is completely based on GPA so it can be difficult to get what you want. They fill up each suite which is 7 people with 2 toilets and 2 showers; or 5 people and an RA living with you with 2 toilets and 2 showers. Junior year you can choose to live in Holland/Princeton housing "on-campus", or move to UH College Suites which is technically off campus but it is the closest housing to the Student Center. You can also choose to get an apartment off campus.

1 College Freshman

Greek Life: We don't have Greek Life!!! We have one Fraternity that is barely even noticed and no one wants to join. There is a professional fraternity but you are only allowed in if you have a great GPA; probably above a 3.5.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: Athletics isn't super popular at this school. The sports that are available are Men's and Women's Soccer, Basketball and Track and Field. Cross country is also available too. The gym is very small and is probably the size of a small highschool. The workout facility is VERY VERY small and can get busy making it hard to get your workout in as there isn't enough equipment.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: This school is so different then what it is made out to be! A lot more challenging with little to no time for extra activities. Upon arriving at this school make sure to stay focused and devote your entire life to school. It's extremely expensive and getting any help from financial aid is difficult. The school is very small with about 200 kids per class year but I actually like that. It makes approaching teachers a lot easier.

1 College Senior

Overall Experience: Don't Attend, This school hasn't taught me a thing. I don't know how I plan to become a pharmacist one day or how I passed.

Greek Life: I am not interested in Greek Life myself, but there are a couple of fraternities and sororities on campus

3 College Student

Athletics: The school does not really emphasize sports, though it makes sense since this is a very science oriented school

4 College Student

Health & Safety: Little has happened, but the air isn't exactly warm.

2 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Atmosphere is really bad. Most people in my grade dropped out/transferred because it was too stifling.

Athletics: I'm saying it's okay because I have no opinion. I see the teams meet and practice, but I don't get the vibe of spirit or anything I usually feel from other sports teams.

2 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Atmosphere is very bad. Mindset is tight and strict; people resort to gossip, bullying, and pushing others out of their small circles in order to vent stress (there's hardly anything else to do). Teachers do not encourage you to think for yourself; they prefer for you to follow their lessons word for word. I left this college and never looked back.
