As a current student at Albany College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences (ACPHS), I genuinely love the school for various reasons. The academic environment is exceptional, offering rigorous programs that prepare students for success in the healthcare field. The faculty members are highly knowledgeable and supportive, fostering a culture of learning and collaboration. One of the standout features of ACPHS is the emphasis on hands-on experience. The institution provides ample opportunities for students to engage in research, internships, and clinical experiences, allowing us to apply theoretical knowledge to real-world scenarios. The practical exposure enhances our skills and prepares us for the challenges of our future professions. The campus community at ACPHS is vibrant and inclusive. The small class sizes create a tight-knit community where students and faculty interact closely, promoting meaningful relationships and a supportive learning environment. Additionally, the campus facilities are well-equipped, providing resources and technology that aid in our academic pursuits. ACPHS also prioritizes student well-being and holistic development. There are various extracurricular activities, clubs, and organizations that allow students to explore their interests outside the classroom. The school's commitment to a well-rounded education contributes to personal growth and a balanced college experience. Furthermore, ACPHS is located in a dynamic city, offering a blend of urban living and a close-knit campus atmosphere. The surrounding area provides opportunities for recreational activities, cultural experiences, and community engagement. In summary, my experience at ACPHS has been overwhelmingly positive. The combination of rigorous academics, hands-on experiences, a supportive community, and a commitment to student well-being makes ACPHS an excellent choice for those pursuing careers in pharmacy and health sciences.

  2. What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

    One of the most valuable things I learned this year at college was time management. This is a skill which is very important in college as well as after college. College is the first real step when a child becomes an adult and having so much freedom can become overwhelming. There are so many things to do such as hanging out with friends, going to parties, sports that sometimes it’s easy to lose track of school work. This is where time management comes into play. I learned that even though ACP may not be the easiest school to attend it is still possible to have fun and still get good grades if you manage your time wisely. Another important thing that I learned at ACP was how to act as a professional. Soon after I began college I realized how my classmates and I were no longer treated as children. We had our own responsibilities and nobody was babysitting us anymore. I think this as well as the professional demeanor demanded by our teachers made us grow up fast. We soon learned how to be professionals without losing our own identity.

  12. What's the one thing you wish someone had told you about freshman year?

    I wish I had known how negative the outlook of students was at this college. The bureaucracy in place does not concern itself with student morale when I feel that it should be the opposite. The programs offered are very work intensive and stressful. The amount of drinking that students participate in is ridiculous and I believe it is somewhat a product of high stress and the lack of interest of the key school officials express (by a lack of enticing alternative activities).
