The Olympic motto is "Citius-Altius-Fortius" which is Latin for Faster-Higher-Stronger (at least that what it says on Wikipedia). At the e-Pulse, our motto is considerably less lofty: "Open-Read-Delete." Hopefully in that order.

Student Dan Corwin Wins National Scholarship Award 

P4 Student Dan Corwin was named a recipient of an American Pharmacists Association (APhA) Student Scholarship. Dan is just one of 13 students from around the country to be recognized with an APhA scholarship award. Dan received the Colonel Jerry W. Ross Scholarship, which awards those who demonstrate the Air Force core values of excellence, selflessness, integrity, leadership, and academics. He and the other scholarship recipients will be recognized on March 31 during a special event at the APhA Annual Meeting and Exposition in Orlando. 

College Hosts Exchange Students from South Korea

As part of a cultural exchange with EWHA Womans University in South Korea, the Office of Global Initiatives hosted a group of eleven pharmacy students and one faculty member from January 19-28. The group visited local health care facilities and attended a variety of ACPHS classes and activities as part of their stay. They also participated in historical tours, cooking classes, volunteer opportunities, and travel, including trips to Saratoga, New York, and Boston. 

"Action Auction" Raises $3,100 for Local HIV/AIDS Center

The annual APhA-ASP Action Auction held last week in the Albert M. White Gymnasium raised nearly $6,000. More than half of the money raised ($3,118) will be donated to the Albany Damien Center, a community center for individuals and families living with and affected by HIV/AIDS. The remainder will be used to support APhA-ASP group events and programs. Special thanks to Provost John Denio and Dean Angela Dominelli who served as auctioneers at the event. The Vermont Campus Action Auction takes place this Thursday.

Reusable Water Bottles Seek to Reduce Cafeteria Waste

In an effort to increase the College's commitment to local sustainability, the Student Government Association and Chartwells are encouraging the use of refillable water bottles at the filtered water station located at Menutainment. Last year alone, there were approximately 24,000 pounds of disposable Greenware cups and lids used to fill beverages in the cafeteria, most of which was for water. This effort aims to reduce that figure by 50%. To help reach the goal, Chartwells has already given away more than 750 reuseable water bottles with plans to have more available soon.

Five Basketball Players Named to HVIAC All-Conference Team

Five Panthers have been named to the 2013-2014 Hudson Valley Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (HVIAC) All-Conference team for men's and women's basketball. Senior Casey Redfern (left), who led the HVIAC in scoring with 20.3 points per game, made the All-Conference team for the fourth straight year. Alexa Schooley, who leads the women's team in scoring at 13.5 points per game, and Taylor Sullivan were each named HVIAC All-Conference for the second year in a row. Kelsey Johnson, who reached the 1000th point mark earlier this season, and Ryan McVaigh each earned All-Conference honors for the first time.

Fine Print

It's hard to watch the Olympic Games and not be reminded of those classic winter activities you enjoyed as a kid. Who can forget the first time they soared down a 90 meter ski jump, slid a curling stone along the ice, or took breaks from cross country skiing to fire a rifle. Ahh, the memories.
