Welcome to the Rx to Life blog! My name is Lindsey and I am a P2 student. Prospective students frequently ask me questions about things to do in the small town of Clinton. I am here to tell you that the Clinton community strongly embraces having Presbyterian College here, including the pharmacy school. Once school starts every year, the town blocks off several streets to host a welcome back party for all the college students. Many of the local businesses participate by giving away items that will come in handy for us “poor college kids” such as bags full of groceries, pens, notepads, and much more. The School of Pharmacy also provides many activities for the students. Many organizations will host events such as the Low Country Boil, Red Heart Gala, cornhole tournaments, game nights, etc. There is always something to do here! The main campus has intramural sports that many pharmacy students are involved in. They also offer sporting event tickets if you are interested in going to the college’s games. I have attended several football games where many students tailgated together. On the weekends, students may want to go to a bigger city; we are only thirty minutes from Greenville, Spartanburg, and Greenwood (which has an awesome lake)! In my opinion, Clinton is the perfect location for pharmacy school. It’s a small town which helps students focus on their school work, it has a very supportive community, and it is in close proximity to many big cities. Clinton, I am proud to say, has become my new home! I hope to welcome you to PCSP so that you can experience this wonderful, small town as well.
