ST. LOUIS COLLEGE OF PHARMACY
Sydney Tu is a second year student pharmacist at St. Louis College of Pharmacy (STLCOP). Born and raised in Southern California, she has spent the last five years in St. Louis, Missouri for pre-pharmacy, pharmacy school, and work.
Sydney has been actively involved in the American Pharmacists Association Academy of Student Pharmacists (APhA-ASP) since her third pre-pharmacy year, serving as her chapter’s Generation Rx Vice Chair. Since then, she has also served as chapter President-elect and currently as chapter President. Beyond the local level, she has held the role of Region 6 Midyear Regional Meeting Coordinator for MRM2018 and has had the tremendous honor in serving as the 2018 APhA Carl F. Emswiller Summer Intern in Association Management in Washington, D.C. She is now seeking to get further involved with APhA-ASP on a national level.
In addition to APhA-ASP, she is the current chapter President for Phi Lambda Sigma and student ambassador for STLCOP. She is also an active member of Lambda Kappa Sigma, ASHP-SSHP, and the Missouri Pharmacy Association. During her time at the College, Sydney has been afforded two opportunities to travel abroad with her classmates and professors for Habitat for Humanity. She went on her first trip to Veles, Macedonia before going on her second trip as a student leader to Guastatoya, Guatemala; she hopes to continue volunteering with Habitat for Humanity after graduating pharmacy school.
Outside of school, she has been working as a pharmacy intern at Barnes Jewish Hospital Inpatient Pharmacy for three years. This upcoming summer, she anticipates completing the Mayo Clinic Pharmacy Internship in the clinic/outpatient practice setting in Rochester, Minnesota. During her leisure time, she enjoys traveling, trying new restaurants, and making artwork. Post-graduation, she is keeping an open mind as to where she would like to begin her career. Ultimately, she is thankful for all the unique opportunities she has been afforded throughout pharmacy school and hopes to utilize these experiences in the future.
