Christine Somers, PharmDClass of Spring 2010Doctor of PharmacySavannah CampusEmployment: Pharmacist at Walgreen’s Pharmacy, Rincon, GeorgiaAlthough Christine Somers had worked as a pharmacy technician at Walgreen’s for nearly a decade, it wasn’t until she was accepted into a nursing program at a university in Florida that she realized she didn’t want to leave the pharmacy counter.“Most of my family is in medicine in one way or another. I guess we have an instinct to help others,” says Somers. “I thought that nursing was my path, but when it came time to walk away, I couldn’t do it. So I started looking into pharmacy schools.”Somers, who grew up near Cape Canaveral in Merritt Island, Florida, knew she loved the Savannah area. When she looked into South University’s School of Pharmacy, she liked what she found.“I was a little older than students at most pharmacy schools, and I just wanted to get it all done, so South University’s accelerated program and intensity appealed to me. The School really prepares you for what you’ll be doing.”Somers, who won a patient-counseling competition among her classmates when she was at South University, says that helping patients understand the drugs they are prescribed is one of her great joys.“I love patient interaction. I love patients.”Somers gets plenty of patient interaction now that she is once again working at Walgreen’s – though she is now known as Doctor Somers, of course. She loves her day-to-day work, but she also knew that she wanted to do more.So when one of her favorite professors called her to ask if she would like to run for a position as a representative of the Georgia Pharmacy Association (GPhA), she jumped at the chance.“I love teaching and educating other pharmacists about what’s going on in pharmacy practice,” she says. Somers is president of Region One of the GPhA. As region president, Somers hosts meetings, plans and promotes GPhA activities, and serves as an advocate for members’ concerns.And when her two-year term as president ends, what’s next for Christine Somers? She can’t say, but it is certain that the instinct to help will propel her along the way.

Military Advanced Education (MAE) has awarded South University the designation of a Top School
SAVANNAH, GA –December 16, 2014 -- Military Advanced Education (MAE) has awarded South University the designation of a Top School in its 2015 MAE Guide to Colleges & Universities, measuring best practices in military and veteran education. The Guide was released in the December issue of MAE, and is available online at www.mae-kmi.com.
“South University works very hard to meet the unique educational needs of our veterans, active service members and their families,” said South University Chancellor John T. South, III. “We are honored that our commitment to helping those who have served our country reach their educational goals continues to be recognized.”
Military Advanced Education released its 2015 Guide to Colleges & Universities earlier this month. The guide presents results of a questionnaire of the military-supportive policies enacted at nearly 600 institutions to arm students with information about schools that go out of their way to give back to our men and women in uniform. This year, institutions were evaluated on their military culture, financial aid for veterans, flexibility, on-campus support and online support services.
South University is also honored to be designated a 2015 Military Friendly® school. The Military Friendly® Schools designation is awarded to the top 20 percent of colleges, universities and trade schools in the country that are doing the most to embrace military students, and to dedicate resources to ensure their success in the classroom and after graduation. The methodology used for making the Military Friendly® Schools list has changed the student veteran landscape to one much more transparent, and has played a significant role over the past six years in capturing and advancing best practices to support military students across the country.
