Academic SupportAs a student at St. Louis College of Pharmacy, academic support is easily accessible to you, whether a question, a click or a phone call away.
O.J. Cloughly Alumni Library
The O.J. Cloughly Alumni Library, located on the first floor of Jones Hall, is a great academic resource. Not only does the library offer many educational resources, including subject databases, print and electronic books and journals, magazines, newspapers, and audiovisual materials, but it also provides a quiet, comfortable environment where you can read and study.
The online portion of the library gives you the opportunity to explore what the library has to offer, with access to databases, e-books, electronic journals, and interlibrary loan requests.
Norton Writing Center
The Norton Writing Center is a free tutoring service that offers one-on-one assistance from trained students with all types of writing during all stages; it is neither editing nor proofreading, but tutoring. The center also has handouts on grammar, punctuation and usage.
Not sure about your resume? The center holds workshops on resumes and cover letters, essay-test writing, and other writing topics.
Disability Services, or the ADA Program, is coordinated by Rebecca Jones, the associate director of academic support. She serves as the liaison between students, faculty, and administration, advocating fair and reasonable student accommodations. Examples of support include, but are not limited to, extended test times and separate testing environments.
The Alumni Mentoring Program brings together members of the Student Alumni Association and alumni to help you gain the best understanding of today's pharmacy career options and best prepare in order to succeed in them. To participate in the program, you must fill out an interest form. The Office of Advancement will then pair you up with an alumnus based on interests and experience.
At the Copy Center, located at 1372 Jones, you can go far beyond a simple copy to create posters, banners, and brochures. If you need help with design, staff is available to assist. Coin-operated copy machines for small jobs are in various locations across campus.
