What has been your most rewarding UUSOP extracurricular activity? Visiting with the residents at Jackson Oaks – I have a passion for the geriatrics community and nothing melts my heart more that to sit and listen to them share their lives with me.
Why did you choose UUSOP? The main reason I chose UUSOP is because of the strong Christian foundation in which it is established. Although my education is extremely important, my walk with the Lord is so much more important. The small class size and family feeling also had a large impact on my decision to choose Union as my pharmacy school.
What advice do you have for prospective students? You need to study and work hard but don’t forget to have life outside of school, too. Breathe often and appreciate the opportunity you have been given. Take time to absorb every moment. There will be days that seem impossible but you will survive! Take one day at a time, keep pushing forward and never stop counting your blessings.
What do you like best about UUSOP? The sincere intimacy that is shared between faculty/staff and students is my favorite thing about the UUSOP. I am thankful for the genuine love and care that I have been showered with since I began the program.
