Thank you for visiting the University of Oklahoma College of Pharmacy Alumni Affairs Association's homepage. It is an honor to serve as your 2013-2014 Alumni Association president, and I am looking forward to an exciting year!!
They say "time flies when you are having fun." I must have had a lot of fun over the past several years. It is hard to believe it has been seven years since graduating; seven short years since setting through lectures, taking exams, making great friends and receiving a quality education that greatly prepared me for my future career.
My goal for the coming year is to let the fun continue. We are planning events over the next year that will be educational and some that will allow you to kick back and reminisce about our college days and reconnect with old friends and faculty. Mark your calendars now for the homecoming football game against Texas Tech on October 26th. We will have a pre-game reception on the courtyard of the student union beginning 2 hours prior to kickoff. Check out the Alumni Store for some OU Pharmacy Alumni gear. There are many different styles, sizes and colors to choose from. This is a wonderful way to support our college and show that OU Sooner pride!!
This year marks the college's 120th anniversary!! We are currently in the planning stage for the Alumni Celebration. It is a wonderful opportunity to visit old friends, make new friends and to celebrate our accomplishments as a college. Please plan to come – we are redesigning the event with you in mind!
Please keep us up-to-date with your news. Maybe you are newly engaged, welcoming home a new baby or just bought your first pharmacy. We, as a college, would love to celebrate with you and share in your joy.
Giving back to the institution that provided the education that allows you to make a living in your chosen profession makes sense. The Mortar and Pestle Society assists the college financially to help carry out their mission of providing an exceptional pharmacy education second to none. We are part of an incredible history, 120 years and counting!! Let's do our part to help ensure a great educational experience for future pharmacists.
Please feel free to contact me with any ideas or suggestions you may have to make this an outstanding year for OU College of Pharmacy alumni!!
