The University of Saint Joseph (USJ) School of Pharmacy celebrated its new expansion in downtown Hartford with a recent ribbon-cutting ceremony which included trustees, alumni, and community leaders. Construction was completed in late spring on the third floor at 229 Trumbull Street in the XL Center where the original 35,000 square foot facility has expanded by an additional 18,000 square feet in a space adjacent to the existing quarters. Additions to the facility include a large student lounge that accommodates 100 people; a multi-purpose meeting space for events, board meetings or community outreach; a major expansion of the library and a large classroom with seating for 48 students. Pictured at the ribbon-cutting event (left to right) are: Hartford Mayor Pedro Segarra; University of Saint Joseph President Pamela Trotman Reid, Ph.D.; Joseph R. Ofosu, Pharm.D., R.Ph., Professor and Dean of the USJ School of Pharmacy; and Jeanne Merola, Chair of the USJ Board of Trustees and Senior Vice President at Hartford Steam Boiler Inspection and Insurance Company.
