Harris attends Roosevelt University's "White Coat" Ceremony
State Rep. David Harris recently attended Roosevelt University’s College of Pharmacy “White Coat” Ceremony in Schaumburg.
Roosevelt University opened its College of Pharmacy at the Schaumburg Campus in July 2011, and it has quickly developed into a leading institution granting a Doctor of Pharmacy degree. For the current Class of 2015, there were over 600 applicants, with 71 being admitted for the rigorous three-year program.
The “White Coat” Ceremony is a tradition at which the students receive a white coat to mark the beginning of their studies for the pharmacist degree. The ceremony was very well attended with nearly 500 people present, including family, friends, the new Class of 2015, the Class of 2014, faculty, and administrative leadership of Roosevelt University.
Roosevelt University’s main campus has a beautiful new building on Wabash Avenue in Chicago. Its College of Pharmacy located at the Schaumburg Campus is an important addition to the educational opportunities in our northwest suburban area.
