Hey everyone!

Tomorrow is spring fest and I’m really excited! There’s going to be live music and a lot of fun activities! My roommate is helping to plan the event and he said there will be an obstacle course, wrecking ball, and defender dome. Lawn games (volleyball, bocce, kan jam, bag toss, and ladder ball) will be scattered throughout the field too! They usually have a food truck as well so I’m ready for a day of fun and food!

Happy Earth Day!

The ACPHS Green Initiative is celebrating Earth Day this year by hosting a Green Week!  Some of the activities involved are making a GREEN smoothie, potting plants around campus, learning about local businesses and organizations and how you can get involved, a plastic bag take-back, and a GREEN yoga class.  It is going to be a great week and a great way to celebrate and promote awareness of our environment!

Hi everyone, 
Tonight is the 9th annual ACPHS Dance Show!  The dance team will be performing several types of dances including ballet, jazz, tap, hip hop, modern, and lyrical.  I am a part of the dance team along with several of our Student Ambassadors and I find that it is a great way to get involved on campus, plus it is lots of fun!  At the end of the show, there will be a “Manly Man” special performance!  Donations for Relay for Life will also be accepted.  I am very excited to perform tonight!

Hey everyone!
Sadly, my days at ACPHS are almost over =( My fifth year class has started a countdown to the last days of school starting with 50! Everyday, one of the class representatives posts a poster of what number we are at and a funny comment! My number was 21 and yeah…. (not true!)

Hi everyone!

This past weekend, the ACPHS community had their annual Wegman’s Leadership Banquet to honor and congratulate all the student leaders on campus.  There were members of each club, organization, and sports team on campus there.  There was great food and many awards were distributed.  It was a great way to celebrate our campus leaders and congratulate each organization on their many wonderful events from the semester.

Hi everyone! 

Yesterday, Dr. Anderson from the University of New Mexico was in Albany to present to the students about the role of clinical pharmacists in New Mexico.  He gave a wonderful presentation about the future of pharmacy and helped inform students about issues that will be addressed at the upcoming NYS Legislative Day at the Capitol!  In addition, there were several raffle prizes and a Meet and Greet following the presentation!

This past weekend, the third year class celebrated their Half Way Dance!  There was food, music, dancing, and friends.  It was a great night and an awesome way to celebrate!

This week, the second years have been busy working in the fume hoods in the Organic Chemistry lab!  We made p-acetaminobenzenesulfonamide, which was quite an exciting experiment!

Hey everyone!

All the Way tickets go on sale today! For those who don’t know, there are two big formals that occur during the six years of pharmacy school. One is for the third year class called “Half Way” to celebrate being half way done with pharmacy school. All the Way is the formal for fifth year students to celebrate being all the way done with pharmacy school! ( well at least before rotations!) I am very excited!

Hello everyone! 

Can you believe it is officially spring?  Hopefully the snow will melt soon in Albany!  I hope everyone had a relaxing break and is ready for the second half of the semester!

Hi everyone,

I hope you are all enjoying spring break.  Yesterday some students and I attended a career fair at a local high school to share our experiences in pharmacy school and answer questions about a career in pharmacy.  It was a lot of fun!

Enjoy the rest of your break!  ~Christina

Hey everyone! So, the resident assistants have finalized their disney program which will be right after spring break! One resident has the theme for “Monster’s University” and he plans on replicating this cake! I’m really excited!
