A Little About Amarillo
Located in the center of the Texas Panhandle, Amarillo is close to some outstanding natural attractions including the Palo Duro Canyon, the second largest canyon system in the country after the Grand Canyon. the "grand canyon of Texas" is located just a few miles to the south of Amarillo. Palo Duro Canyon State Park is open year round and in summer lends a spectacular backdrop to the musical production "Texas." Other popular attractions include the zoo, museum of art, and the Wonderland amusement park.
Located within the main building of the School of Pharmacy is the Texas Pharmacy Museum, open to the public. This treasure-trove of wondrous artifacts is a testament to just how far Pharmacy has come in its long history.
The city of Amarillo straddles the counties of Potter and Randall, making them two of the 49 metro counties in the state. Amarillo is home to the Amarillo Art Center, the Amarillo Little Theater, the Amarillo Symphony, and many museums in the panhandle area, including some dedicated to the rich heritage of the West. A taste of this heritage is offered by way of "cowboy" breakfasts and dinners at area ranches.
While Panhandle weather can be tricky and sometimes severe, the winters are usually mild and snowfall infrequent. Summer days are hot, but dry with an annual average humidity of 56%, and evenings are a blessing with moderate temperatures, extended daylight, and cool gentle breezes. Both spring and fall have warm day temperatures with cool nights. Sunsets and lightning storms can be spectacular!
Come Play, Come Stay!
There is no shuttle service between the Amarillo International Airport and hotels in the Medical Center.
All prospective students should identify themselves as such when making a reservation to receive special rates.
Also identify yourself at time of check-in and if the hotel offers transportation to the school, make sure they are aware that you will be needing it.
The most conveniently situated motel to the Pharmacy school (3 blocks, no sidewalk) is the Best Western Amarillo Inn, 1610 S. Coulter, (806) 358-7861. However, the motel does NOT pick up at the airport nor will they guarantee bringing you to the school. Identify yourself as a prospective student to the School of Pharmacy.
The Marriott Residence Inn (806) 354-2978 and the Marriott Fairfield Inn (806) 351-0172 are also convenient to the school, but NOT within walking distance. If you are a visiting student, the Fairfield Inn will assist in transportation the morning of your interview.
The Holiday Inn (806) 372-8741 and the Holiday Inn Express (806) 356-6800 offer transportation to and from the airport. The Holiday Inn will also bring students to the school on the morning of the interview and pick them up that evening. The Holiday Inn is not close to either the Pharmacy School or the restaurants listed in the next section. Their offer of transportation makes this hotel a consideration. The Holiday Inn Express offers a continental breakfast.
