Legacies, UC Pre-Pharmacy Students Rule the Winkle College of Pharmacy's Incoming Class

CINCINNATI—A little more than half of the James L. Winkle College of Pharmacy’s 2015 incoming class is a UC pre-pharmacy graduate, and the alumni legacy is also well represented.  


"The key is that all of our students come very well prepared … and we know UC students have a strong academic foundation before they begin their pharmacy program,” says Andrea Wall, associate professor and assistant dean of student affairs.


A total of 98 students received their white coats in a ceremony on Tuesday, which signified their entrance into pharmacy school. Of these students, 54 percent were UC pre-pharmacy graduates, 59 percent were female and 11 percent were an underrepresented minority.


The class also had a strong showing of UC College of Pharmacy legacy students, with parents or siblings who attended.  Among the legacies are ...

  • Incoming student Alex Klingenbeck is brother to Adam Klingenbeck, who is slated to graduate from pharmacy school here in 2013. Their father, Richard Klingenbeck, is a ’75 graduate and their uncle, Larry Klingenbeck, is a ’63 graduate.   
  • Incoming student Caroline Barone’s father, Lou Barone, is an ’82 graduate.
  • Christian Unger’s parents, Mark and Patty Unger, graduated from UC’s pharmacy school together in ’77.
