  • Locker sales
  • Yearbooks
  • Orientation
  • Bulk textbook orders
  • And much more!

November 6, 2017: November? More like Movember 😉

Fast forward, and we’re already at November. There’s snow on the ground, and it’s a period of relative peace for most of us after weeks of exams, projects, and assignments (or is it? Why isn’t it Reading Week or Winter Break yet?!)

November at Pharmacy School also means Movember and Mr. Pharmacy. The annual APSA mock male beauty pageant is back to raise funds and awareness for the Movember Foundation and men’s health. I don’t know about you, but I am super hyped! Please do not forget to check out this year’s contestants to see who’s participating and their story behind their participation.

If you have any questions or concerns about the website, please feel free to contact me – Frank Huang – at fhuang1@ualberta.ca.
