Class of 2015

This year, the College of Pharmacy graduated 169 Doctor of Pharmacy students—53 from the Duluth campus and 116 from the Twin Cities campus. Class speakers Tony Olson (Duluth campus) and Bethany Von Hoff (Twin Cities campus) spoke at the May 9 ceremony.

The commencement speaker was Jill Strykowski, director of pharmacy at Mercy Hospital and Unity Hospital, part of Allina Health; and past president of the Minnesota Pharmacists Association. She told graduates, “Your career experiences will shape your thinking and level of involvement. They will be both different and similar to your colleagues. I appeal to your hearts and minds to avoid myopic barriers and challenge you to practice ‘pharmacy without borders.’”

Strykowski continued, “Most importantly, from this day forward, I ask you to take really good care of each other as fellow pharmacists. Our patients and the future of pharmacy are counting on you.”
