Showcasing Pharmacy with New Community Days

Community DaysOver this past year, our School of Pharmacy has been identifying ways to showcase our close-knit school community to prospective students, while also finding a mechanism to educate our community about the pharmacy profession and what it entails, especially for those who might be in high-school or beginning to take some college prerequisite courses. We decided to modernize an old idea, like interview days and open houses, and transform these events to our newly refreshed (and fun) SOP Community Days!

We encourage those individuals looking to learn more about pharmacy and careers within the pharmacy industry to attend. These fun-filled and informative events are geared toward current deposited students, prospective students, as well as high-school and undergraduate students. We encourage attendees to bring along their loved ones and support system to this family-friendly event. As one would expect, everyone will get an opportunity to learn more about our School of Pharmacy (SOP) program. However, there are many other advantages to attending.

  • Students and their families get to talk to current students and faculty in a casual environment about what they can expect attending our program.
  • Attendees learn more about career opportunities within the pharmacy profession.
  • Prospective students get to participate in a white coat photo shoot.
  • Everyone gets to make some lip balm.
  • Attendees get the chance of winning the grand prize in SOP trivia!

We would love to have past alumni join us for these Community Days. It is a great way to stay connected with us, but also a fabulous opportunity to play a role in engaging in conversations with potential students that are exploring their future pharmacy careers. You not only, can have a lasting impact on these individuals, but the future of the pharmacy profession. Please email if you would like to participate!

Mark your calendars! Our next Community Days for the 2023-2024 academic year are scheduled for Saturday Nov. 18, Feb. 24 and April 13

If you can’t make these dates, but would like to figure out how to connect with prospective students, please reach out to us, we would love to engage with you!
