Program Description

The mission of the Purdue University College of Pharmacy is to: Educate and train students to become leading pharmacists and scientists, Advocate scientific discovery and development, and Maximize global health outcomes through patient care and public service. Purdue University was established in 1869 and the College of Pharmacy was established in 1884. Purdue is a land-grant, state-assisted institution of higher learning. The programs offer excellent opportunities to prepare for careers in pharmacy practice, industry, research, or education. Diversity and opportunity are characteristics of the University. Over 1000 campus organizations cater to the varied interests of students, including 25 professional organizations in the College of Pharmacy and a variety of music, theater, hobby, and sports clubs campus-wide. Purdue is a member of the Big Ten athletic conference and participates in a large number of both men's and women's athletics.

Strong letters come from supervisors, advisors in college or community organizational involvement in which the applicant is actively involved (through leadership roles, planning committees, task forces, etc),.
