Life at ACPHS

We're all about making the world a better place through science and medicine, and we'd love for you to join us! Our community is filled with passionate people who are always looking for ways to make a difference, whether it's through clubs, classes, labs, or volunteer projects. And we're all in this together, as friends, neighbors and future colleagues.

We know that life can get hectic, so we've got plenty of ways to help you find balance. You can play sports, explore our 55+ clubs and organizations, or grab a bite to eat at our dining hall. Whatever you're into, we've got you covered.

And when it's time to venture off campus, we've got you covered there, too! Lark Street is just a hop, skip, and jump away, and it's filled with all sorts of restaurants, coffee shops and art establishments. If you're in the mood for a show, just head a bit further to the MVP Arena or Palace Theater. The possibilities are endless, and we can't wait for you to join us!
