How has Purdue College of Pharmacy giving impacted your education and enhanced your experience as a student?
As I progress through Purdue, I develop a greater appreciation for all the support that students receive. On a daily basis, professors take time out of their schedules to assist students on a variety of topics, fostering a sense of community within the college. This semester, I was fortunate enough to have been able to present research at the College of Psychiatric and Neurologic Pharmacist’s national meeting in Tampa, Florida. Such an experience would not have been possible without the support from Purdue faculty, but is by no means limited to this. The dedication to the student base applies just as much to the alumni and other contributors that have provided invaluable financial support. While a terrific program, Purdue Pharmacy, like any other professional endeavor, is a large financial commitment. Having monetary assistance has made a significant impact in paying tuition and has been a means of enabling me to make the most of my time while at Purdue. I am truly grateful to those who have contributed to offsetting my financial costs and hope to return the favor to future generations.
