  • Class of 2017: Where Are They Going Next?

    Graduating Students

    “You’re off to great places! Today is your day! Your mountain is waiting, So.. get on your way!”

     – Dr. Seuss

    With just one day to go, Commencement is fast approaching for our Dean College soon-to-be graduates.

    They’ve completed the researching, reading, and learning necessary to practice in their field of study and they’ve explored interests beyond their major through elective courses.

    They’ve taken advantage of internship opportunities at Kraft Sports Group, Patriot’s Place, The Pawsox, The Washington Center and more.

    They’ve attended guest lectures from industry leaders such as Jonathan Kraft, Angela McKay, and Larry Lucchino.

    They’ve choreographed dance showcases, and produced sold-out theatre performances.  

    They’ve created and produced their own radio shows as on-air talent, program directors, producers and interactive media marketers for the Dean College radio station, Power 88.

    They were winners both on the field, and on the stage.

    And tomorrow each of these graduating students will walk across the stage and receive their well-deserved diplomas.

    But after the celebration comes the next steps in their lives and careers. They’ve worked hard for their future and are being rewarded appropriately for the work. Check out where some of our seniors are going after May 6th!
