Office of Student Services
The mission of the Office of Student Services is the development and implementation of programs and processes encompassing recruiting, academic advising, and retention programming that facilitate student academic success, career development, and personal growth for Pre-Pharmacy and pharmacy students.
Advising efforts consist of proactive, interactive, and holistic approaches to addressing academic and personal concerns of students. The emphasis in working with students is on providing supportive guidance to assist their decision-making processes.
An advisor advises students about their academic decisions. It is important for students to meet regularly with their advisors to ensure that they are fulfilling their requirements and developing strategies and practices for academic success. An advisor is a resource for college and university support in academic growth and development. An advisor will share considered options for extracurricular choices, volunteer service experiences, or student employment issues.
Career Development efforts include the integration of personal assessment, career exploration, job search and professional practice transition activities/programs in classes, student groups, alumni/industry presentations, site visits, and information resource access.
