Olayinka Stephen Fadowole (pictured here with HWC Transfer Director Ellen Goldberg and his advisor Anna Koomalsingh) has come a long way in a short time since moving to Chicago from Nigeria just six years ago. A 2014 Harold Washington College graduate, Stephen is currently a third year student in the nationally-ranked Doctor of Pharmacy program at the University of Illinois at Chicago. Many of his fellow classmates arrived to the program with bachelors and masters degrees already in hand.  Stephen was able to shave 1.5+ years off the path to his Doctor of Pharmacy degree by transferring to UIC directly from City Colleges.  Stephen said City Colleges prepared him well for the challenge, and his UIC classmates have been very supportive. Stephen looks forward to pursuing a career in retail pharmacy when he graduates at the end of next school year.
