white coats are draped over auditorium seats pre-ceremony

All 1885 Society members and mentors are invited to take part in a White Coat Ceremony, a special event welcoming first year students into the pharmacy profession and college family.

You are also invited to participate in the event by 'coating' one or more students as they walk across the stage, and to serve as a professional guide throughout the student's four years in the College of Pharmacy. In this capacity you will have the opportunity to act as a valuable resource and role model to the coated student(s), providing insight and mentoring during the student's academic career.  If you are interested in attending and being part of the White Coat Ceremony, please contact Barbara Kelley, Director of Communications, Advocacy, and Alumni Relations.
