Student Organizations
Student activities are an important part of your education, and we strongly encourage you to participate in one of a professional, social or recreational nature. There are three honorary organizations: Phi Lambda Sigma, Phi Kappa Phi, and the Phi Chapter of Rho Chi. The college's four fraternal organizations are: Lambda Kappa Sigma, Kappa Psi, Phi Delta Chi, and Rho Pi Phi. Other organizations include: American Pharmaceutical Association-Academy of Students of Pharmacy, Academy of Managed Care Pharmacy, Community Drug Education Committee, Illinois Council of Health Systems Pharmacists, Association of Indian Pharmacists, Asian Pharmacy Association, Christian Pharmacists Fellowship International, and Student National Pharmaceutical Association. For students interested in student government, each class has four class officers and two to four representatives who represent each class on the Pharmacy Student Council.

General Policies for Student Organizations in the College:

Student organizations must reregister each year with the Campus Programs Office (50 Student Center West).  Student organizations must work closely with the Office of Student Affairs.

Any requests for new organizations, need to be approved by the Associate Dean for Student Affairs.  Student organizations can be registered and approved by campus without going through the College.  HOWEVER, to be recognized and allowed to function within the College, a group must seek approval by the College.  A group approved by the College can then seek membership in Pharmacy Student Council (PSC) and become eligible for College funding through the PSC appropriations. 

Student Center West
This west side campus union offers a wide range of facilities and services including dining, a retail shop, barber, game room, bowling alley, travel agency, ticket sales, sports and fitness center, craft shop, etc.  A UIC identification card or current schedule is needed for most fitness activities.

Locker Policy
P1 through P3 students are assigned a locker and college-issued lock each fall.  P4 students may request a locker for use during any UIC rotation. A locker agreement must be signed prior to the use of any college locker.
