The College of Pharmacy building renovation will commence on December 17, 2018. With great anticipation, the faculty and staff have been organizing and preparing the rooms slated for the renovation. The first phase will include the infrastructure (the eastern end of the basement), converting PHR 201 into the new Dean's office and remodeling the entire first floor (east of the lobby). The estimated completion is the end of August in 2019.
Excitement grows as the building takes on a new look!
