      Dean College Presents: Scapino!, October 25-28, 2018

      09/10/2018

      Visit www.dean.edu/boxoffice to purchase tickets!

      The School of the Arts at Dean College will perform Scapino! beginning Thursday, October 25 through Sunday, October 28, 2018.  

      Inspired by the French playwright Molière’s original 1671 play, Les Fourberies de Scapin, Frank Dunlop and Jim Dale have heightened Molière’s comedy with slapstick and burlesque, resulting in a story of the most engaging nonsense. Set in contemporary Naples, Italy, two sons, two daughters, and two fathers find themselves mixed up in the crafty Scapino’s plot to solve romantic problems faced by two of his friends. A fast-talking, quick-thinking scamp, Scapino cleverly manipulates and cajoles everyone into doing what he intends them to do.     

      The Dean College production of Scapino! will take place in the Main Stage in the Campus Center at Dean College, 109 West Central Street, Franklin at 7:30 p.m. Thursday – 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

      09/10/2018

      Dean College ranks 23rd in the 2019 U.S. News & World Report for Best Regional Colleges, North category.

      Dean College, a private, residential college located in Franklin, Massachusetts, has been ranked 23nd in the 2019 U.S. News & World Report for the Best Regional Colleges, North category. Additionally, Dean placed 12th in this category for Best Value Schools.  

      This is the eighth consecutive year that Dean College has received the Best College honor and 3rd consecutive year for Best Value.

      “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.
