Undergraduate Pharmacy Society (UPS)
The UPS (Undergraduate Pharmacy Society) is an organization run by the students, for the students.
The UPS advocates for pharmacy students, provides social, athletic, and professional events, and promotes a positive community for pharmacy through regular involvement.
As a pharmacy student, you are automatically a member of this society. UPS links all four classes together, as well as the faculty staff.
