      International and Arch Students Arrive on Campus


      Today, Friday, August 29, marks the beginning of International Student Orientation (ISO) and Arch Orientation.

      International students from 26 countries around the world arrived on campus yesterday afternoon to meet their student leaders, move in to their dorms, have dinner and unwind. Over the next few days, international students will have the opportunity to learn more about Dean and the Franklin community by visiting a local bank, setting up telephone and internet services, shopping for necessities and enjoying evening activities with their new classmates. In general, ISO offers an opportunity for international students to become acquainted with Dean and the surrounding areas.

      Additionally, students from the Arch program also arrive on campus today and begin their orientation! Arch Orientation allows those participating in the Arch program to become better acquainted with others in the program and to learn more about the program itself. Over the next few days, students will sit through sessions such as Linking Your Academic and Campus Life, The Journey from High School to College and Writing Your Success Plan. Students will also participate in fun off-campus adventures and team-building exercises.

      Welcome to Dean – we are excited to have you here!

      Dean College Presents Hot L Baltimore, October 21-25, 2015


      The Dean College School of the Arts will perform Hot L Baltimore beginning Wednesday, October 21, 2015 through Sunday, October 25, 2015.

      Hot L Baltimore is a drama of passing events in the lives of characters ranging from young to old, the defiant to the resigned, and their everyday encounters, with conversations often overlapping into a contrapuntal musical flow. As the action unfolds, the residents of this rundown hotel interact with each other during the course of one day. In the resulting mosaic each character emerges clearly and perceptively defined, and the sum total of what they are — or wish they were — becomes a poignant, powerful call to America to recover lost values and to restore itself in its own and the world’s eyes. You won’t want to miss this Dean College performance! Parental advisory is suggested.

      The Dean College production of Hot L Baltimore will take place in the Main Stage within the Campus Center at Dean College, 109 West Central Street, Franklin at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday – Saturday and 2:00 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. Tickets range from $5-$22 and can be purchased online. To learn more and purchase tickets, visit

      Dean College enjoyed another successful Family and Alumni Day on Saturday September 26, 2015.  

      The day started with an alumni reception and campus tour, allowing everyone an opportunity catch up and check out the changes to the campus.

      Afterwards, it was time for former athletes to show their stuff. Grant Field was the site for the Dean Alumni lacrosse game, allowing both former and current players the opportunity to check out Dean’s new synthetic grass field. Concurrently, Dean Baseball was enjoying an alumni game down at the Longley Field Complex.  
      Later in the afternoon, Longley was the site as the Dean College football and soccer teams were all in action.  

      Dean football took on Globe Institute of Technology while men’s soccer faced and handily defeated Holyoke Community College. Dean women’s soccer was also in action facing Bunker Hill Community College. 

      The day’s festivities concluded with Dean’s Hall of Fame induction ceremony.  Occurring once every five years, tonight’s event held special meaning to the Dean community as one of the honorees was long-time Athletic Director John Jackson.
