Green is the official color of Pines City Colleges. This represents life, nature and well-being of man. This manifested in the College of Pharmacy's round logo with scalloped edges. This symbolizes the well-rounded personlaities of the students and graduates who are trained in the multi-faceted aspects related to the duties and responsibilities of a Pharmacist.
The center of the logo contains the symbol “Rx” which stands for the Latin word “recipe” meaning “to take.” It is customarily part of the superscription (heading) of a prescription. The Rx in the logo speaks of the College’s commitment to educate students for a responsible provision of pharmaceutical care. Maroon is the official color of PCC College of Pharmacy to distinguish it from other schools/ universities. The numeric 1993 implies the year the Program started. Asterisks accentuate the logo.
About the College of Pharmacy
It was out of the Pharmacy Aide Program in 1962 that the College of Pharmacy came to be. Continuous effort made it possible for the granting of Government Recognition No. 10. S. 1996 to offer the complete 4-year BS Pharmacy Program effective S.Y. 1996-1997.
In its years of existence, the College of Pharmacy proved that “WHAT WE DREAM CAN HAPPEN IF WE BUT MAKE IT HAPPEN.
The College showed that PCC can achieve academic excellence through its 100% passing rate in the Licensure Examination and as one of the top performing schools of Pharmacy in the country. It showed PCC’s potential competitions, the College made it to the top in sports, musical, and literary competitions and named, for more than once, the Over-all Champion!
With the rise in Nursing course in 2004, the College of Pharmacy was not exempted from the death number of enrollees. With its dream to keep its doors open, it intensified its outreach programs and campaigns that the community, the country, and the world need PHARMACISTS. Later, shifters, second coursers, transferees, freshmen from highlands and lowlands had been coming and the College started getting back the doors of the classrooms open for Pharmacy students. Yes, the College dreamed, worked for it, and made it happen.
In 2008, the College, once again, dreamed of regaining the crown it lost. Revitalized, united, determined… Indeed, it got back its tide as the Over-all Champion in PCC inter-college competitions.
This year, the College of Pharmacy is blessed with more students to cater to. As it continues to fulfill its mission to provide the country with Pharmacists, the College is driven with the goal, “NO GRADUATE LEFT BEHIND, BATCH 2010 AND ONWARDS”. It aims its graduates to be prepared to face the challenges of licensure examination as their starting point in the practice of their profession; graduates who are not to be left behind but are ready to immerse themselves to the more challenging local and global trends.
