Krystal Lacombe, '13
"The sciences had always been intriguing to me, but I was unsure of how to translate my interests into a future career. I applied to UNE and got accepted into their brand new Pre-Pharmacy Program on the Biddeford Campus. After two years, I had completed the necessary prerequisites and was accepted into the College of Pharmacy at UNE.
"Going to pharmacy school has allowed me to explore the scientific field without narrowing my potential career opportunities. The more I learn in the classroom and in the laboratory, the more I realize the significant impact I can have on the pharmaceutical community on a local and potentially national level.
"I knew UNE was the right place for me to learn and grow the moment I arrived on campus. People here really care! At UNE, I am a student, a friend and a contributing member of the school community.
"The UNE College of Pharmacy allows me to network with other student pharmacists and current pharmacists as a member of the American Pharmacist Association - Academy of Student Pharmacists (APhA-ASP) and the Maine Pharmacists Association (MPA). The professors in my program are here for one reason: my success. Being a contributing part of the inaugural class of the College of Pharmacy has had its challenges, but it has opened so many doors to my future."
