Pharmacy Schools Hosts Academic Open House

Mylan School of Pharmacy

An Academic Open House for Mylan School of Pharmacy students and their families was held in the Bayer Learning Center on Saturday, October 19, as part of Duquesne University's annual Family Weekend. Approximately 50 first year pre-professional students and their family members attended the hour-long question and answer session, which was facilitated by Senior Academic Advisor Christopher Hagan and Academic Advisor Julie Mehelcic, as well as students from the sophomore and junior years. The student presenters provided academic advice on such topics as time management, studying for the PCAT exam, and study abroad opportunities. They also suggested how to get involved in the School of Pharmacy fraternities and sororities, and briefly discussed their career options after graduation. "The PPYI students and families enjoyed hearing about the School of Pharmacy from a student's point of view," said Mihelcic.
