FAMU Petition for State Funds

FAMU COLLEGE OF PHARMACY FORCED TO TURN QUALIFIED STUDENTS AWAY Thanks for helping FAMU\'s College of Pharmacy. The College of Pharmacy is ranked as one of the top pharmacy programs in the country. It is reported that 1 of every 5 Black pharmacists in the country is a FAMU graduate. In December, 73 FAMU pharmacy graduates ALL passed the national licensure exam required to practice, beating the national pass rate of 97.23 percent and the state pass rate of 98.22 percent. The College of Pharmacy has received 1,189 applications but can only accommodate 150 of those qualified students who\'ve all worked hard. We are asking our state government to give FAMU a small $2-$3 million to complete phase 2 of the pharmacy school. This will enable the College of Pharmacy to accept more deserving students. This petition will be presented to Gov. Charlie Crist and a press conference will be held. Our goal is at least 10,000 signatures in the next few weeks. We know there is power in numbers! Please send this e-petition to all of your friends, family and supporters of FAMU. We need you!
