Student Organizations

While academics play a big role at Massachusetts College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences (MCPHS), there’s a lot of life to live outside the classroom too. By diving into Student Life, you’ll not only enrich your educational experience, you’ll also make some great connections and contribute to the energy of our vibrant community.

Our students volunteer with their fellow classmates at clinics, schools, and non-profits in their own backyard, providing compassionate patient care to those in need. They attend stress reduction and relaxation sessions during midterm and finals weeks. And they connect with their classmates at regular social events, including ice cream socials.

You can also give your résumé an edge by networking with alumni and other industry professionals through our professional fraternities, honor societies, and the many clubs here at MCPHS. Or hone your leadership skills through student government or one of the leadership development organizations on campus
