Thank you for tuning in with us this week. We took last week off because we figured there would be more than enough content out there that was taking the attention/priority of the nation. This week we wanted you to hear first hand from one of our students on why she feels confident she made the right decision in choosing one of the top pharmacy schools in the country.
"As a student at Lipscomb University College of Pharmacy you will get much more than a Pharm.D. degree... My name is August Whipple, I am a 3rd year pharmacy student at Lipscomb and I also happen to be the SPGA (Student Pharmacist Government Association) president. When I started pharmacy school, I knew it would be challenging, I even worried I wouldn’t have a social life, but I had no idea I would have so much fun and meet the best friends I’ll ever have!
I recommend while you’re in school to get involved in multiple student organizations to learn more about our profession. We have over a dozen student organizations you can be a part of to gain leadership proficiency, obtain real world experience in your field of interest, give back to the community and build lifelong friendships.
I can think of one experience that I will look back on for the rest of my life. We had been in school for only a couple weeks. We had rush week for the fraternity I was pledging (Kappa Psi) and I had met a lot of new people. My birthday was coming up, and I remember being sad that I couldn’t be with my family for my birthday for the first time in my life. That weekend, 50 classmates from school came over to my apartment to celebrate my birthday! That’s when I realized that I had a family at Lipscomb too.
The possibility of experiences like that are why I chose Lipscomb. I never dreamed I would have hundreds of experiences just like that one, but I felt something special when I visited Lipscomb. I love my school and I think you will too! We look forward to showing you why we are one of the top pharmacy schools!"
