Time to study
By Linda Homewood
UF College of Pharmacy students in Jacksonville now have 3,267 square feet to study and work. A ribbon-cutting ceremony was held in August to celebrate the renovated space, which provides students with a 24-hour workspace, student mailboxes and a kitchen area. The new study space also includes two large group study rooms for students to view video lectures together. In addition, there are three new offices for faculty and a shared office for academic students and residents who come to the campus on rotation assignments. Plans to create additional skills lab areas will begin next summer to support the college’s curriculum reform, which will begin in fall 2015. Shown here from left are David Cunningham, Julie A.
