Greetings and welcome to the Northeastern University Alumni website!

With the 2014-15 academic year underway, I’m reflecting on what a remarkable year we’ve had in the school of pharmacy. The school, college and university all continue to stand out with respect to academic quality, experiential education and use-inspired research. Intellectual rigor, innovation, and leadership underlie the many successes we are seeing among faculty, students and alumni. The constant pursuit of excellence in our work, whether it be in the classroom, experiential or laboratory settings, drive us to new levels of achievement

Please take a few minutes to review our news page. You’ll see that we have much to celebrate, with many good things on the horizon. And it’s being noticed on national and international stages in the form of research, grants, awards, elections, and rankings. I look forward to keeping you informed about your alma mater and the many accomplishments of our students, faculty, staff and alumni. We would love to hear from you! Simply email your alumni news to the school’s mailbox at

Thank you for visiting our website, and please consider making a gift today to help us maintain our forward momentum as a premier school of pharmacy. And know that you are always welcome to come back to your academic home as we shape our bright future!

50th Anniversary

In 2012, the School of Pharmacy celebrated its 50th year at Northeastern University, and a total of 85 years of rich history that includes our predecessor institutions.  We have so much to continue to celebrate – outstanding students, accomplished alumni, world class faculty, internationally recognized researchers, and a top-notch educational experience, which includes the only pharmacy cooperative education (“co-op”) program in the country.  Our successes of today have their roots in the decades of history that came before – back to 1927 when the Meriano School of Pharmacy was first founded, and its transformation through the years as the Boston School of Pharmacy and the New England College of Pharmacy.  You, our alumni, are an integral part of this history.  Glimpse the exciting things about our School of Pharmacy in this 50th Anniversary Tribute Video.
