New pharmacy students receive orientation

Today, the very first incoming class to the new school of pharmacy at William Carey University’s Tradition campus got a taste of what they can expect from the upcoming semester.

University President Dr. Tommy King and Dean of the school of pharmacy Dr. Michael Malloy welcomed the class of 2021 at orientation. The students picked up nametags, took ID photos, and enjoyed breakfast with their fellow classmates.

The school of pharmacy at the Tradition campus in Biloxi officially opens on July 23rd with a class of 60 students. Student Candance Webber said, “It’s great that it’s here on the Coast because it’s easier for me, having kids, to be able to get here instead of going away to Ole Miss or Mobile, Alabama having that hour drive. It’s perfect.”

Dr. Malloy said, “We’ve been embraced by the Coast and that means a lot to us and hopefully we can give back what they’ve given to us.”

William Carey’s school of pharmacy offers the only accelerated three year doctor of pharmacy program on the Coast from New Orleans to Pensacola.
