Alumni gather for revamped Homecoming Tailgate
On November 3, College of Pharmacy alumni, students, staff, faculty, and well-wishers gathered during a temperate but blustery Saturday afternoon during the annual Homecoming Tailgate. This year featured a change of venue from the Pharmacy Building to the official tailgate area around the Darrell K Royal – Texas Memorial Stadium. The College of Pharmacy’s spot was a large tent in the plaza in front of the LBJ Library. Guests ate brisket and sausage, enjoyed refreshments, and prepared for the Texas Longhorns’ brawl with the West Virginia Mountaineers.
Special recognition went to alumni from the Classes of 1968, 1978, 1988, 1998, and 2008. The lively event was at capacity and made possible with generous sponsorship from H-E-B.
The College of Pharmacy Alumni Association met before the start of the event to pass the torch for Alumni Association President. Andrew Hwang (Pharm.D. ’15) assumed the new role as president, and the association honored outgoing president Steven Knight (Pharm.D. ’09) for his tireless service.
Thank you to everyone who partook in the festivities. Be sure to come again next year, and tell your fellow alumni to join the fun!
