How did your professors/staff help prepare you for your next step? 

我的教授为我选课提供指导, helping me choose the right classes that aligned with my career goals and the requirements of pharmacy school. 他们分享了学习技巧方面的建议, time management, 和考试准备,以帮助我的学业成功. With their lead, I worked on research projects gaining hands-on experience and developing critical thinking and problem-solving skills.

When it came to my pharmacy school application, my professors were instrumental. They wrote strong letters of recommendation that highlighted my academic achievements, skills, 而且有潜力成为未来的医疗保健专业人员. Their advocacy and support played an important role in strengthening my application and increasing my chances of admission.

My professors were more than educators; they were mentors who invested in my success. 他们坚定不移的支持, knowledge, and guidance helped me navigate the path to pharmacy school with confidence and prepared me for the next chapter of my academic and professional journey.


My coursework gave me a solid foundation in chemistry and biology and equipped me with the necessary knowledge and understanding of fundamental concepts. The classes challenged me to develop effective study habits before pharmacy school. I had the opportunity to engage with my future profession as a pharmacy intern while fulfilling Honor’s College credits. The internship allowed me to gain practical experience and first-hand insight into my future. It enhanced my understanding of the profession and solidified my interest and commitment to pursuing my PharmD. My academic experience at Brescia -the coursework coupled with my internship experience- gave me a competitive edge as an applicant and showcased my dedication to pursuing a career in pharmacy.

I recommend Brescia to anyone seeking to further their education because it offers a unique educational experience characterized by personalized attention, a supportive community, academic resources, 以及个人成长的机会. Brescia students thrive academically, socially, and personally, making it an excellent choice.

There is a culture of care that fosters an inclusive environment. The university and its faculty values respect, compassion, love, and acceptance. This strong sense of community creates a welcoming home away from home where students can feel understood and connected to their peers and faculty members.

布雷西亚致力于学生的成功, which is evident given the numerous resources that are provided free of charge to students. For example, Brescia offers year-round tutoring through the peer-mentoring program in the library. There are also provisions of wellness year-round to encourage students to be their healthiest mentally and physically. More specifically, there are confidential counseling and mental-health screening services provided by a licensed staff member. 在每学期的期末周, there are “de-stress” events hosted to encourage students to relax and unwind with some crafts, snacks, games, and movies. Brescia recognizes the importance of student well-being and takes a holistic approach to education.
