School of Pharmacy schedules first Preview Day; March event provides a look at pharmacy education

The School of Pharmacy has scheduled its first Preview Day for 2 p.m., Saturday, March 28 at the school located adjacent to the Veterans Affairs Medical Center.

“We are very excited to offer this first-ever Preview Day to students who may be interested in becoming pharmacists,” said Laura Rudolph, director of recruitment and development for the School of Pharmacy. “As students begin to discover their possible career interests, it’s imperative to explore every avenue. We felt that a Preview Day would showcase not only the vast career options in the pharmacy field, but provide area students an opportunity to experience Marshall’s unique active learning curriculum firsthand.”

In addition to a student-led School of Pharmacy tour, the Preview Day will offer several sessions, including the following:

• “Ask the Students” Student Panel – Q & A Student Panel
• Where Can I Go From Here? – Career Options in Pharmacy
• Experience Active Learning – Classroom Interaction
• The Admissions Process

Students also will have the opportunity to visit the Pharmacy Fair, where they can meet and greet individuals from different departments such as financial aid, experiential learning, student organizations, and pharmaceutical research.

Registration is required and is due by March 14. Students can register at
