Spring is always a busy and exciting time at the School of Pharmacy. We want to thank the staff, faculty, students, parents, friends and donors who participate and make these joyous occasions possible on so many levels.

On April 22, the School held its Scholarship and Awards Convocation and the WVU Health Sciences Center. You can find a complete list of scholarships and recipients here.

On April 29, the School held its annual Bowl of Hygeia Ceremony. Each spring semester, students completing their third year of pharmacy coursework participate in this pinning ceremony to mark the beginning of the practice portion of the curriculum and the final year of their pharmacy education.
