The Early Entry Pharmacy Living-Learning Community (LLC) offers a residential component for first-year students admitted to the Early Entry Pharmacy program.
The University of Mississippi’s Early Entry Pharmacy program provides highly-qualified students with guaranteed seats in the professional pharmacy program upon completion of three years of pre-pharmacy coursework. The Early Entry Pharmacy LLC adds additional support and sense of community to the robust program initiatives already in place to help Early Entry Pharmacy students succeed.
Residence Hall for 2017-18: Residence Hall 3
The Early Entry Pharmacy LLC requires no additional housing application. All students accepted to the Early Entry Pharmacy are strongly encouraged to participate in the Early Entry Pharmacy LLC. Students will use their assigned housing selection timeslots to choose bedspaces within the LLC.
Early Entry meetings, group study sessions, academic advising, and other programming will be conducted in this space. Bedspaces are limited to those students in the Early Entry program, as the LLC is designed to encourage relationships between Early Entry students with the same general academic schedule and rigor and who participate in many of the same out-of-classroom experiences. From the moment early entry students first step foot on campus until the day they receive their white coats, Early Entry students truly become a close-knit “phamily.”
