Each fall, the incoming PharmD class is presented their white coat for the very first time. This time-honored tradition serves as an opportunity for members of the pharmacy community to welcome students into the profession. Faculty, fellow pharmacy students, alumni, and Kentucky's professional organizations join for a night of inspiration and encouragement of the College's newest family members.
This year's ceremony will be held at 6:00 pm on Friday, August 18, 2017; Singletary Center for the Arts. Prior to that ceremony, the College will host an open house for family and friends from 3:30 - 5:00 pm in the College of Pharmacy Atrium.
Parking during the White Coat Ceremony for students and guests will be available in employee lots marked with an “E” after 3:30pm. Please check the signage as some “E” areas are controlled 24 hours for permits. Parking will also be available behind Memorial Coliseum, which can be accessed from Rose Street. Do NOT park in any of the parking structures/garages for they close at 7pm and patrons will not be able to get their car out of the structure.
