As part of an annual tradition, incoming pharmacy students received their white coats as they start their students at Texas Tech Pharmacy School.

The white coats signify the students first step towards becoming a medical professional. The students also signed and recited their oath.

For one student, it was reaching a point she's been working towards for years. She says she decided to become a pharmacist when she saw the relationship between her grandmother and her pharmacist when her grandmother was battling breast cancer. She said wearing her white coat is a symbol of reaching her goal.

Students begin classes Monday.
