First-year pharmacy students celebrated their induction into pharmacy school and the end of orientation week by donning their official lab coats and reciting their class pledge during the 2013 White Coat Ceremony Aug. 16.
The Class of 2017, comprised of 160 students from 27 states and two countries, had a lot to smile about during the ceremony. Competing against 891 applicants for one of 160 available spots, these students are the best of the best. The year’s candidates come from a wide range of educational backgrounds and hold everything from associate’s to bachelor’s and master’s degrees.
Always a crowd pleaser, the White Coat is attended by incoming students, family, friends and faculty. Check out photos from the event on our flickr site at http://www.flickr.com/photos/36481234%40N02/
