Albany College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences

The college's history dates back to the 1800s, when it was one of the only pharmacy colleges in the country. Today, ACPHS has 1,400 students enrolled on its two campuses, which are located in New York and Vermont. ACPHS pairs a small-college feel with high-level research opportunities and expert faculty members. It offers bachelor's programs in subjects like microbiology, public health, and clinical laboratory sciences, setting students up for success in nursing school, hospital jobs and more. ACPHS even has two student-operated pharmacies. When not hitting the books (and labs), students can keep busy by joining the equestrian club, dance team, a fraternity or a professional organization. Outdoor activities abound., as well. In Vermont, there's great hiking and skiing; in New York, students can check out the Adirondacks.
