      Dean College Holds Dale Lippert Football Field Dedication, Saturday, October 17, 2015


      On Saturday, October 17, 2015 Dean College honored a beloved faculty member and coach, Dale Lippert with a surprise dedication at the Longley Athletic Complex.

      Thanks to a generous donation from Peter Hexter ’66, a member of the Board of Trustees, Dean College was able to dedicate the football field in Dale’s name. 

      The surprise was announced during the halftime show of Saturday's football game. Dale was asked to make his way to the center of the field. It was there that he was honored for his dedicated service with an unveiling of a sign across the press box with his namesake.

      From 1964 through 2006, Dale Lippert served on the Dean faculty, coached several teams, and held the position of Athletic Director for 13 years.  He has been an integral part of the Franklin community, serving on several local boards, training young athletes, and teaching First Aide Training at Franklin High School. Dale is an educator, a coach, a mentor, and more importantly, a friend.

      Thank you Dale for making The Dean Difference! We look forward to hosting our upcoming football games on 'your' field.

      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
