As a current pharmacy school student of Wingate University, I thought it would be a fantastic opportunity to volunteer as a P2 buddy for our upcoming new P1 pharmacy school students. As a P2 buddy, I had the privilege of helping to familiarize Wingate’s new pharmacy school students with the school and surrounding local businesses. For out-of-state students, it can be intimidating to travel to a new state and not be familiar with what is readily available! I also had the opportunity to help quell any concerns the students had about beginning their new journey as a pharmacy school student. I love to share what I know, so I was excited to be able to answer many questions that the new students had about our curriculum. I participated in the buddy breakfast, the picnic, and the school fashion show. The fashion show helped to showcase what was appropriate and what was not appropriate to wear to school following our business casual dress code. I had a fantastic time and loved the opportunity to meet many new peers. It was a great experience that I will never forget and hope to be a part of again in the future!
