Pharmacy Marker (Rho Chi)
The symbol of Pharmacy was presented in memory of Robert B. Hakes, ’55 PH, by his parents,
Dr. and Mrs. Vern Hakes, ’33 PH/ ’76 hon., dedicated on Honors Day 2002. It currently stands at the south corner of the Robertson-Evans Building.
The marker on the southwest corner of the Robertson-Evans Pharmacy Building was erected in 1984 to commemorate the pharmacy college’s centennial year. The marker consists of a granite block approximately four feet high. One side bears the college’s name and founding year while the two opposing sides carry the bowl of Hygeia, the symbol for pharmacy. The block is topped by the symbol of the Rho Chi Society, a national honors society for pharmacy students in their fourth or fifth year.
A time capsule, to be opened in 2084, has been placed below the marker
