The annual White Coat Ceremony at the College of Pharmacy recently recognized 144 new students, the largest class in the college’s 107-year history. All students received white lab coats to mark the beginning of their pharmacy careers. The event, sponsored by Kroger Pharmacy, featured a program and a reception for new students and their parents.
Of the 144 members of the Class of 2014, 71 percent are female, 33 percent are minority and 2 percent are from outside the state of Georgia. The class grade point average is 3.52, and the average composite Pharmacy College Admission Test (PCAT) scores were in the 80th percentile; 31 percent of the new students already have a bachelor of science degree and 55 percent previously attended UGA.
