Perfection may be elusive but 31 students found it during their P1 year at the MUSC College of Pharmacy.  The MUSC chapter of Rho Chi, the national pharmacy academic honor society, recognized the students at the chapter’s September 3 meeting, presenting them with certificates of academic excellence. Each student earned a 4.0 GPA their first year.

“Earning a 4.0 in our program is quite an achievement,” said Cathy Worrall, associate dean for admissions and student affairs. “These students had the additional challenge of learning remotely to start their pharmacy education. To come out with a perfect score is a testament to their hard work, ability, and desire.”
