Attire The recommended dress for cocktail parties and the dinner dance is dressy casual. For the afternoon events, please be comfortably casual. If you plan on attending a tour, we urge you to wear comfortable shoes. The locker room at the ARC will be available if you'd like to make a clothing change before the cocktail parties.
Special Assistance If you require special assistance during the day or evening, please contact the Office of Alumni Relations at 215.596.8856 a few days before the event so that we can help accommodate your needs. We will have golf carts available for alumni (upon request) who require assistance from one building to the next.
Weather Most events are inside, but just in case our order for a sunny day is ignored, we urge you to bring rain gear for the short walks between buildings.
Cancellations Please let us know if you have an unavoidable change of plans as we must provide Catering with our guest count. Please contact the Office of Alumni Relations at 215.596.8856.

Marvin Samson Center for the History of Pharmacy
No cost to attend.
This exhibition celebrates the legacy of John Wyeth (1834-1907), a graduate of Philadelphia College of Pharmacy, who, in 1860, co-founded a drugstore with research laboratory that eventually grew to become the multinational pharmaceutical corporation, Wyeth. The over 300 objects on display (manuscripts, ledgers, letters, ephemera, advertisements, prints, photographs, books, periodicals, devices, and drug bottles, containers, and packaging) document distinct moments in Wyeth’s complex 150-year history. These items are part of the large archive that Wyeth gifted to USciences in 2009.
