An Inside Look

What students are saying about us...

  • “ACPHS offered me the chance to be around like-minded students with the same goals as me. My initial impression of the College was that other students the same age as me could be successful in the health sciences, and I found that inspiring.”

  • “I enrolled in ACPHS because I knew the College would put me on the path to success. With high retention and graduation rates, I got the sense that students at the College aimed for nothing short of success, and I realized I wanted to be one of those students.”

  • “ACPHS offered a small-school feel with good financial aid. Other bigger universities were closer to home but viewed students as numbers instead of as individuals. Here, students’ voices truly matter.”

  • “When I toured ACPHS, the guide spent time talking about her experiences instead of just trying to convince me to come here. I just felt like it was a place where I could see myself one day, and now I am here!”
