Darryl Monroe is junior from St. Louis, Mo. He is a health science major with an emphasis in pre-professional studies and is on a pre-pharmacy track. He plans to attend pharmacy school in Missouri, Illinois, or Kansas after graduation from Mizzou. He would like to work in a retail pharmacy setting.

“I think new freshmen should take advantage of all the opportunities that Mizzou has to offer,” Darryl says. “Mizzou may seem huge at first, but with all the organizations you can join it can make it seem a lot smaller. Don’t be quick to feel alone and helpless. There are plenty of resources on campus that are here to help you be the best student you can be and guide you in the right direction.”

In addition to serving as a School of Health Professions student ambassador, Darryl is involved in the SHP Peer Mentor Program, STRIPES, and the Pre-Pharmacy Club.

What has been your favorite Mizzou moment?

Painting rocks on the “M” at the football field my freshman year.

Why did you choose your major?

Majoring in health science allows me to have various options and never feel like I’m stuck. It also allows me to experience classes that involve the topics of health care and public health.

Why should students choose Mizzou?

Students should choose Mizzou because it is a great place for them to experience growth in their lives, and this institution can provide them with the tools they will need to excel in their future careers. The number of opportunities and adventures you can take at Mizzou are limitless and I believe every student deserves the chance to experience them.
