2016 Fall Open House A Success
One of the largest freshman classes in Duquesne University history enrolled for Fall 2016. Hoping to continue the recruitment momentum for Fall 2017, the University Office of Admissions hosted the annual Fall Open House on Sunday, September 18, 2016.
Dean J. Douglas Bricker, who addressed nearly 100 prospective pharmacy students and their parents during the event, represented the School of Pharmacy. Outside, on the Academic Walk, School of Pharmacy Director of Recruitment Jason Stack spoke with families one-on-one. The event showcased more than 85 academic programs at the University, along with various departments and services.
According to Stack:
"The students and their parents had a lot of admission questions, along with some questions about the Pharmacy profession in general. Our table on Academic Walk was busy for the entire five hours we were there."
Stack went on to say how impressed he was with how many bright and motivated prospective pharmacy students attended the event this year.
