Goodwell, Okla. — OPSU graduate Pamela Nwachukwu just recently graduated from West Virginia University in May of 2015 with a Doctor of Pharmacy degree. Nwachukwu is currently employed as a Pharmacist at Rite Aid Pharmacy in Wheeling, West Virginia.

An international student from Lagos, Nigeria, Pamela Nwachukwu began taking classes at OPSU in 2006 and graduated in 2010 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology and a Bachelor of Science degree in Chemistry.

During her time at OPSU, Nwachukwu was a student-worker at Marvin E. McKee Library and a member of the International Club as well as Alpha Chi. She was on the President’s and Dean’s honor roll list multiple times.

When asked how OPSU helped in obtaining a pharmacy degree Nwachukwu said, “The School of Sciences faculty (Dr. Justin Collins) were a great help in providing basic tools required to study independently for advanced entrance examinations.”

A number of OPSU faculty and staff members were very important to Nwachukwu and played a key role in her time at OPSU. She said “the community was a great one” and she added the entire library staff was “very instrumental in providing emotional, mental, and physical support through my years at OPSU.”

Nwachukwu also said, “OPSU was a great place to spend my mid to late teenage years. I met many great people, which laid the ground work for many of my future interactions.”
