The Pre-Pharmacy Learning Community is a great opportunity for you to begin building a network early. Not only will you live with students in your same discipline and receive support academically, but you will also be exposed to a variety of opportunities to connect with faculty and staff within the College of Pharmacy and across the university.

"I thought living in the learning community was really helpful! It really enabled me to make a lot of friends in pharmacy that I otherwise probably wouldn't have known. It was great to have exams at the same times as everyone else in the hall so that we could study together and help each other. It was also nice knowing that you weren't going through the dreaded exam week alone! If I had a question, there was always at least one person in the hall that knew the answer and could help me. If I could do it all over again, I wouldn't change a thing!"

-Second Year Pre-Pharmacy Student

"I absolutely loved my experiences in the pre-pharmacy learning community. It was a great way to network with other pre-pharmacy students, as well as make lifelong friends within my major and with similar interests. Also, living on the floor with most people in the same classes as me made finding study groups easy! Throughout the year I became so much closer to so many people that I will be involved with academically, socially, and professionally throughout the rest of my Purdue career and after."
