According to Class President Shady Mansy, PharmD (pictured at left), there are now an additional 70 LLUSP students that can answer that call.
“The four years went by very fast. But this class is special. We became a family shortly after we started our journey and continued to grow even more.
We usually overshadowed any other class in participation at events, venues, and conferences. Our four years at LLU exemplified service with so many students doing pharmacy outreach events locally and globally.
The Class of 2013 is very ambitious in nature, and the sky is not the limit. Whoever said the sky is the limit certainly wasn’t talking about our class,” said Dr. Mansy.
Class of 2013 advisor David Weldon, PhD, agrees.
“It was a pleasure to be the advisor for the Class of 2013. They were a fun bunch of students who worked very hard, always sought service opportunities, and were consummate professionals during the entire four years of study and practice.
We could not have asked any more from a group of students, and the university is very proud of the accomplishments of the LLUSP Class of 2013,” said Dr. Weldon.
According to the Director of the Division of Experiential Education, Naomi Florea, PharmD, the Class of 2013 did indeed exemplify success.
“79% of the students applying to pharmacy residency programs matched to residency programs, and this is above the national average.
In addition, the quality and diversity of pharmacy residencies that the graduates matched is quite impressive. There are a great variety of the different pharmacy residency programs nationwide which include PGY1’s and fellowships. Graduates will be attending residencies as close as USC and as far away as Rutgers University in New Jersey,” said Dr. Florea.
The entire School of Pharmacy is very proud of the Class of 2013!
