Pre-Health Sciences LLC

Community Description

Professor G-Wiz Magic ShowIncoming new students with an interest in a science based major can participate in a Pre-Health Sciences Living Learning Community to assist in their transition to science at the university level. Students in this community will be enrolled in CHEM 141 in the same class lecture, lab, and small group workshop with other students in the Pre-Health Sciences LLC.

This community has often attracted students planning to study Chemistry, Biochemistry, Pre-Pharmacy, Pre-Med and Geo-Sciences. Additionally, the Resident Assistants on the floors are science majors who have successfully taken Chemistry 141 and can provide insight and assistance for new students.

Please note that students planning to study Pre-Nursing or Wildlife Biology take Chemistry 121 for those majors, and therefor do not qualify for this Living Learning Community.

Programs & Events

Past programs for this community have included:

  • Study sessions in the building before quizzes and exams in the course
  • Chemistry 'magic show' with UM resident wizard 'G-Wiz' (Dr. Garon Smith)
  • Informational sessions and tours of the Pharmacy School for Pre-Pharmacy majors about applying to Pharmacy School
  • Panel discussions on how to be successful in Chemistry 141 from upper-class students who have taken the course

Housing Location

The Pre-Health Sciences Living Learning Community is located in Craig Hall. Male residents live on the 1st floor South wing and female residents live on the 2nd floor South wing.
