Preview Day 2015
Mylan School of Pharmacy
Prospective students who have been accepted to the Mylan School of Pharmacy attended Preview Day on Sunday, February 22, 2015. Despite a very snowy, cold day, approximately 450 guests were in attendance (over 140 students and their parents) while University personnel worked to clear the campus of snow and ice. During the event, parents and prospective students were separated from one another to participate in information panels and participated in faculty-guided tours of school facilities in both Bayer and Mellon Halls. Visitors heard from Dean J. Douglas Bricker on what makes the profession of pharmacy a great career choice and what makes Duquesne unique among other pharmacy programs. There were a number of faculty who served as tour guides, and 140 current student pharmacists who served as campus tour guides, showing families around various points of campus, as well as having lunch with them and relating to them their experiences at Duquesne.
According to Ms. Alana Harteis, Admissions Counselor for the Mylan School of Pharmacy, "Preview Day is one of those events that makes me proud to be part of Pharmacy at Duquesne! The day created overall feelings of excitement, pride, and a sense of community - thanks to our volunteers. Faculty, staff and students made families feel welcomed as they showcased our academics and community involvement. I think families enjoyed their time on Campus and truly experienced what makes Duquesne special."
Accepted freshmen have until May 1 to pay their deposits and commit to Duquesne University. We look forward to seeing them in the Fall!
