      Tickets on Sale Now for Urinetown, November 19-23, 2014

      10/27/2014

      Dean College School of Arts will present Urinetown on November 19-23, 2014.

      Urinetown is an irreverently humorous satire that tells the story of a terrible water shortage, caused by a 20-year drought, and a government-enforced ban on private toilets. The citizens must use public amenities, regulated by a single malevolent company that profits by charging admission for one of humanity’s most basic needs. Amid the people, a hero decides he’s had enough, and wants to lead them all to freedom! This is a hilarious tale of greed, corruption, love and revolution in a time when water is worth its weight in gold.

      Tickets are now available for 7:30pm and matinee showings for $5/$10/$20 at www.dean.edu/urinetown

      Dean College Leadership in Action Series is Off and Running

      10/27/2014

      The Leadership in Action series kicked off with James Convertino on Thursday, October 16, 2014.

      James is the Director of the Professional Athletes & Entertainers Practice for Britton Gallagher. With over twenty seven years of experience in insurance consulting, James spoke to students of the importance of integrity, regardless of outside influences.

      Following James came the inspirational story of Dr. Ellyn Robinson on Tuesday, October 21st, a competitive weightlifter who struggled to overcome two cancers at the same time. Her presentation titled: Full Speed Ahead! STEP UP or GIVE Up: My Journey of Survivorship from 2 Cancers at the Same Time, says it all. Dr. Robinson encouraged students to never give up their dreams and goals.

      On Thursday, October 23rd, Tyler Fletcher came to speak to students about his job as the Soccer Operations Assistant for the New England Revolution. As a somewhat recent college graduate, Tyler spoke to students about his experience working in the sports industry. He shared the ins and outs of sport management and spoke to students about the importance of being self-motivated in a busy work atmosphere.   

      Coming up next:

      On Thursday, November 13, Scott Pirrello, CEO of CampusTVs, will visit campus to update us on the successes and failures of running a TV rental business at over 300 campuses countrywide.

      Last but not least, Scot and Jacq Tatelman, co-founders of State Bags, a company that provides a backpack to a child in need with each purchase, will be on campus to close out the Fall Leadership in Action series on Tuesday, December 2nd.
