What is your favorite thing about Purdue?

I love the atmosphere! The big campus feel, lots of people, and countless opportunities.

What was your favorite class?

Patient-Centered Care PHRM 826. We basically learned how to triage patients who come to us in a community pharmacy setting.

What are your favorite things about your program of study?

The Pharmacy program is rated 7th in the Nation and that means I get to study for a world class education with people from all over the world. When I graduate with my PharmD from Purdue I know I will not have limitations on where I want to go with my life.

What is your career goal?

I know that I want to work directly with patients, but pharmacy is such a great career because I can make it what I want it. A PharmD degree from Purdue gives me an endless list of opportunities.

What would you tell prospective students about Purdue?

I would tell them that there are not many colleges like Purdue that not only offer you a great education, but also offer the diversity of opportunities to meet new people and do great things.

What is the most interesting thing you’ve learned or seen as a tour guide at Purdue?

Purdue has the largest Amelia Earhart archive in the world!

What is your favorite spot on campus?

The Pharmacy Building of course! Not only a fantastic library, but arguably some of the best qualified and caring staff in all of campus. I have not met one faculty member in that building that hasn't exceeded my expectations.
