Dean College

  • Class of 2018: Where Are They Going Next?

    Commencement 2017

    With just a few days 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 WEEI, Kraft Sports Group, Patriot’s Place, The Pawsox, The Best Buddies Program and more.

    They’ve attended guest lectures from industry leaders such as Michael Spillane,  Angela McKay, and John Clark.

    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’ve produced sold-out theatre performances on-campus, and performed in front of thousands at Gillette Stadium.  

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

    And on Saturday 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 5th!
