      Dean College students helped kick-off the NFL season On Thursday, September 10, 2015 at Gillette Stadium where the Super Bowl Champion New England Patriots took on the Pittsburgh Steelers.

      Over 125 Dean College students, including AMGT, Business, Dance and Sport Management majors, participated as on-field performers for Thursday’s pre-game celebration. With close to 300 on-field performers, Dean students comprised 50 percent of the on-field pre-game presence at Gillette Stadium.

      Participating as an on-field banner holder was John Reed ’17, a business management major from Warwick, RI. “This was an opportunity of a lifetime,” said John. “It was incredible to have the opportunity to go behind the scenes and participate in an event like this. This is an experience that I will tell my kids when I am older. Being involved at Dean has opened up opportunities that I never thought were possible.”

      Dean College was thrilled to partner with the New England Patriots to help deliver a world-class pre-game presentation. Following the performance, students will receive an event debrief in the classroom to bring the learning experience full circle.

      This opportunity was brought to life through The Center for Business, Entertainment and Sport Management at Dean College, a partnership with the Kraft Sports Group.

      Check back tomorrow on Facebook and our blog for more information and pictures from the event.
