Pharmacy Alumni Society simplifies membership model

The alumni society has transformed its membership model to be more inclusive to all Pharmacy alumni. Now all alumni of the college are members and receive basic benefits like newsletters and access to career services. In addition, the society also simplified sustaining membership. If alumni want access to expanded benefits like print newsletters and football tickets, they can make a $75 tax-deductible contribution to any fund at the College of Pharmacy. This $75 contribution also makes alumni elligibile for a sustaining membership in the Ohio State University Alumni Association (OSUAA). It's a two-for-one deal!

As part of the changes that OSUAA made to their membership model in 2012, those who complete residencies at Ohio State are now considered alumni, including those that completed a residency through the College of Pharmacy.  Those residency alumni are now elligible for full benefits in both the Pharmacy Alumni Society and OSUAA including football ticket eligiblity.

For more information on Pharmacy Alumni Society, please visit the webpage. For those who are looking for their membership renewal form, you now renew your membership by making a tax-deductible contribution.
