The Rho Chi Society Chapter Gamma Omega

2014 Rho Chi Banquest

As a member of the Association of College Honor Societies, The Rho Chi Society gives professional recognition in the field of pharmacy to students for academic excellence. Candidates for induction must complete at least half of their didactic pharmacy doctorate degree program and place within the Top 20 percent of their class.

“The Rho Chi Society encourages and recognizes excellence in intellectual achievement and fosters fellowship among its members,” said Quyen Dau, chapter president. “Further, the society encourages high standards of conduct and character and advocates critical inquiry in all aspects of pharmacy.”

The Rho Chi Society Chapter Gamma Omega started in 2008 at the Texas A&M Rangel College of Pharmacy.

“To serve as the Rho Chi adviser is an honorable duty to assist and help coordinate chapter activities,” said Mohammad Nutan, Ph.D., associate professor of pharmaceutical sciences. “The Rho Chi Induction Banquet is a special and prestigious ceremony bringing together motivated scholars in the field of pharmacy. I look forward to work with the new members of the chapter.”

The Texas A&M Rangel College of Pharmacy was created in 2006 in response to the shortage of pharmacists in the Texas border region.
