Party With Pharmacy at 50

Join fellow alumni, friends, and faculty as the College of Pharmacy celebrates its 50th anniversary on Saturday, March 8, at the Newport Marriott. Fine dining, dancing, and fun will highlight the evening.

“This will be a celebration of our past and future. We look back at our great history and look ahead to a new building, increased enrollment, and exciting new challenges,” said Ronald P. Jordan, the college’s interim dean. “We have 3,600 graduates of our college and they have had an incredibly positive influence on health care in so many ways in our state, nation, and indeed our world. So come and celebrate the college’s many contributions, each other, and our bright future.”

Cocktail hour for the black tie optional event begins at 6 p.m., followed by dinner and dancing until midnight with the popular band Brass Attack. The Newport Marriott is located at 25 America’s Cup Ave.

“This is our biggest event of our anniversary year,” said Celia MacDonnell, clinical associate professor and chair of the anniversary celebration. “Come reconnect with old friends and former professors and meet some of our new professors and staff.”
