ALBANY, N.Y. – Twelve students from Albany College of Pharmacy have been named national outstanding campus leaders and will be included in the 2004 edition of Who’s Who Among Students In American Universities and Colleges, a biographical directory that honors some of the nation’s most exceptional college students.
Selection to the Who’s Who Among Students directory is considered one of the most prestigious awards the academic community can present to students. The following Albany College of Pharmacy students, all in the sixth and final year of the Doctor of Pharmacy program, have been selected to join the elite group of students representing 2,300 institutions of higher learning across the nation:
- Nicole Bulmer, Syracuse, N.Y.
- Matthew Dashnaw, Saranac, N.Y.
- Angela Gipprich, Greenville, N.Y.
- Scott Guisinger, Rome, N.Y.

First published in 1934, the guiding principle behind the Who’s Who Among Students program is that college students are the source of the nation’s future leadership. College campus nominating committees, which include representatives from the faculty, administration and student body, nominate upperclassmen and graduate students who have demonstrated academic achievement, service to the community, leadership in extracurricular activities and potential for continued success.
Founded in 1881, Albany College of Pharmacy is the oldest pharmacy school in New York state and one of the only private, independent pharmacy schools in the United States. The college has a long history of serving its students and health care professionals as one of the premier pharmacy colleges in the nation. The college now enters a new era in health care with a focus not only on pharmacy, but also on pharmaceutical sciences, biomedical technology and research.
