In the PY1 fall semester, new students are encouraged to attend the Student Senate Organization Carnival. PY1s are provided many opportunities to learn about the recognized professional organizations in order to make well-informed membership decisions. Each student organization is assigned at least one faculty advisor who works closely with the organization as it carries out its mission, vision and goals.  Students are encouraged to thoughtfully consider membership decisions that most closely align with their passions, interests, and career trajectory. 

The PharmD Student Senate is the overall governing body for all enrolled students and recognized student organizations as well as each cohort of elected class officers. More details regarding the PharmD Student Senate – including important policies and procedures – can be reviewed in the Student Senate Constitution located in the PharmD Student site on Canvas.
