International students from 26 countries around the world

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 graduate Rodney “Lucky” Whitehead has been signed as a free agent by the Dallas Cowboys, following the recently concluded National Football League Draft.
Lucky is a 2013 graduate of Dean College and a 2015 graduate of Florida Atlantic University. He is a native of Manassas, VA and Osbourn High School alumnus.
During his time at Dean College, he earned first team All-American honors as well as first team All-Conference recognition at both wide receiver and return specialist. Lucky was recognized as the team's special team player of the year as a senior. “This is a tremendous accomplishment for Lucky,” said Todd Vasey, associate athletic director and head football coach at Dean College “It is really exciting to see all of his hard work, dedication, and perseverance payoff for him. Somehow I have a feeling the best is still yet to come.”
Lucky is the second Dean alumnus within the last year connected with the NFL as D.J. Morrell, 2011 graduate and offensive lineman was signed by the Detroit Lions, and later moved on to the Buffalo Bills.
“The Dallas Cowboys are fortunate to be getting such a talented, passionate young man with a sense of purpose and an appreciation for the value his academic background will bring to his game of football,” said Dean College President Dr. Paula M. Rooney. “Lucky is smart and ready for the challenge of the NFL. We are proud to say that he is a member of the Dean College Class of 2013.”
