      Dean College Presents: Six Characters in Search of an Author, October 11-15, 2017

      The School of the Arts at Dean College will perform Six Characters in Search of an Author, beginning Wednesday, October 11 through Sunday, October 15, 2017.           
      This compelling play is juxtaposed as six characters arrive unexpectedly during the rehearsal of a play in search of an author to complete their story. Audiences for over 90 years have enjoyed and mused on the dilemma provided by the arrival of the “out of time and place” individuals. Do not miss this early absurdist play exploring the relationship among authors, their characters, and those involved in theater productions.
      The Dean College production of Six Characters in Search of an Author will take place in the Main Stage in the Campus Center at Dean College, 99 Main Street, Franklin at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday – Saturday and 2:00 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. General admission is $22, Seniors $12 and Children $7.

        Dean College Ranks Among the Top Best Regional Colleges

        09/25/2017

        Dean College Ranks Among the Top Best Regional Colleges

        Dean College, a private, residential college located in Franklin, Massachusetts, has been ranked 22nd in the 2018 U.S. News & World Report for the Best Regional Colleges, North category. Additionally, Dean placed 15th in this category for Best Value Schools.  

        This is the seventh consecutive year that Dean College has received the honor.

        “We are thrilled to be recognized by U.S. News and our peer institutions once again this year,” said Dr. Paula M. Rooney, Dean College President. “It signals the overall strength of Dean’s academic experience and the emphasis we place on student success.”

        U.S. News & World Report is a multi-platform, publisher of news and information. The U.S. News ranking system for the Best Regional Colleges rests on two pillars. The formula uses quantitative measures that education experts have proposed as reliable indicators of academic quality, and it is based on research of what matters in education, including: graduation rate performance, academic reputation, and financial selectivity among others. 

        This year’s ranking is a testament to The Dean Difference – the hands-on and engaging faculty & staff, strong academic support, valuable internships, and real-life workforce preparation that Dean College provides.
