Students Promote American Pharmacists Month on Today Show
What would you do to promote your profession? How about board a bus at 2 a.m. and head down to the Today Show plaza? Well, that's exactly what a group of ACPHS students did last week to help promote October as American Pharmacists Month. While they didn't get interviewed on air, they made their presence known to all in attendance and an audience of millions watching around the country. And then they slept. A lot.
Alumni Soccer Players Back In Action


About 40 alums returned to campus on Sunday, September 30 to play in the annual Alumni Soccer Game.
