Lots of opportunities to help others
Steven Cole loves science and math and helping others, especially the elderly. And he likes ONU’s 0-6 pharmacy program, which allows students to take classes in their major on the first day. This pharmacy major interned with Bausch and Lomb, working on contact lenses projects, but he’s planning a career in community pharmacy so that he can a difference in the lives of others.
Helping others is his goal, and membership in the American Society for Clinical Pathology (ASP) and American Society of Consulting Pharmacists (AMCP) has helped him sharpen that focus. As ASCP president, he’s helping the group make great strides by assisting the elderly and starting two new outreach programs. He already works at Walgreens on the weekends and wants to implement what he has learned about caring for older adults into his professional life.
“ONU has given me lots of opportunities,” he says.
