FACULTY Professional, Experienced and There for You

What will your professors be like? How will they lead you from where you are to where you want to be? Will they be there for you when you need them — during class and after class? Good questions. Endicott College has good answers. Your professors, both full-time and part-time, combine a love of teaching with a wealth of experience in their professional fields. You will quickly sense your professors’ love of teaching. They will encourage you to speak up in class — to ask questions, state your opinion, let your voice be heard, make your presence known. They will welcome the informal conversations, over coffee or in their offices, that lead to greater self awareness and, often, lasting friendships. They will expect much of you, and you, in turn, will begin to expect much more of yourself.

“ 14

Endicott faculty are a community of learners and leaders who truly change lives. Students here have many opportunities to reach their full potential in an environment where open dialogue is encouraged, both in and out of the classroom.

Dr. Sara Quay, Dean of the School of Education


â–ź

All of the faculty have been selected for expertise in their fields and enthusiasm for teaching. â–˛

15


Yes, your self expectations will increase — as a person, as a student, and as a professional. Your professors know what it takes to succeed in their chosen fields, be it broadcast journalism, child psychology, hotel management, or whatever. They will convey the knowledge and sharpen the skills required for success in your chosen field. Because they think and act like professionals, you, too, will begin to think and act like a professional.

16

What you learn from Endicott’s faculty will stay with you long after you’ve gone on to do your work in the world. You will probably stay in touch with one or two faculty friends after graduation. You will certainly leave with the conviction that your Endicott experience has been shaped in countless and timeless ways by the College’s caring and experienced faculty.

DEGREES Your Options Create Great Opportunities

What options will you discover to best meet your needs? Whether it be to continue your education in graduate school or to begin your career... that’s for you to decide. However, you’ll receive continuous guidance and constructive feedback along the way: from your academic advisor, your professors, internship supervisors, study abroad faculty, and from your peers – good sounding boards as well as supportive friends. You will discover that experiential learning increases self confidence and instills life-long understanding of the importance of taking risks and accepting challenges in all aspects of your life.

With small classes taught by dedicated and highly experienced professors and our unique program of three internships, Endicott students are remarkably well prepared to enter the profession of their choice or to go on to further their education in graduate school. In my mind, this provides tremendous value to students and their parents.

Dr. John Kelley, Associate Professor, Psychology

EXPERIENTIAL LEARNING

THROUGH INTERNSHIP Practical Experience in the Working World... “But do you have experience?” You can

count on this question during your first job interview — and every other one

thereafter. Your answer will start with one word, “Yes,” because you will get lots of

practical experience in the working world

through the College’s extensive internship program. In most Endicott programs, you will spend your first two January terms

working at internship sites where you apply

what you have learned in the classroom.

During your senior year, you will spend an entire semester on an internship

assignment. You will gain more than

practical experience and the ability to say

“Yes” to an interviewer’s favorite question. You’ll acquire a better sense of yourself as

a person and as a professional. To see how internships can change lives, read the stories that follow . . .

Jeremy and Jonathan Morgan, Class of 2015, have a lot in common. They both play lacrosse, they are both majoring in criminal justice, and they are twins. The brothers from Long Island, New York, say they were drawn to Endicott not only because of the lacrosse program but also because of the internship program. “We believe that a high percentage of graduates will get job offers because of the internships and experiences they have at Endicott.” After their first internship with the Malverne Police Department, which, the brothers say, “really opened our eyes to the daily life of a police officer,” they interned with the Cotter Law Firm in Stratford, Connecticut. “It gave us a different view of the criminal justice field, and it widened our view of which way we might like to go.” Both brothers have chosen to pursue Endicott’s Homeland Security Studies minor.

INTERNSHIP: ENTERTAINMENT CRUISES • BOSTON, MASSACHUSETTS

STUDENT INTERN

Brooke Worcester ’14 Kennebunk, Maine

MAJOR

Hospitality Management, with an Events Management Concentration

SITE

Entertainment Cruises Boston, Massachusetts

INTERNSHIP

Planning a wedding can be a detail-driven, emotionally charged time. For one summer internship that Brooke pursued “solely for the experience,” she coordinated 18 of them!

“Entertainment Cruises specializes in creating unforgettable memories out on the water,” she says, and their Boston location hosts social and corporate cruises on three ships: the Odyssey, the Spirit of Boston, and the Seaport Elite II.

“ 20

“There were surprises on the job every day, but Endicott prepared me to take any challenge head on and find a solution that makes sense,” she says. “Back-of-the-house operations are vital to the success of an event, and as an Endicott student I have been exposed to the operations side as well as the coordinating side. This was my third internship, and after completing each internship I have had a much better understanding of what career path I want to go down.”

The experience you gain through internship is irreplaceable, and I am confident that I will have an easier time obtaining a position after graduation because of my internships.


INTERNSHIP: SHORELINE FITNESS • OLD SAYBROOK, CONNECTICUT STUDENT INTERN

Jordan Saintil ’16 Deep River, Connecticut

MAJOR

Sport Management

SITE

Shoreline Fitness Old Saybrook, Connecticut

INTERNSHIP

Working with the fitness manager at Shoreline Fitness, Jordan witnessed the many facets of a successful fitness facility. “Throughout my experience I gained knowledge about the multiple responsibilities of a fitness manager and his or her staff – everything from communication with the owner to auditing the fitness equipment to the importance of customer relations and in making Shoreline Fitness a comfortable, familyfriendly atmosphere for people to come and work out,” he says. “Students at other colleges and universities may not have on-thejob experiences in their majors until they have graduated, but Endicott students get started right away. That will in turn aid them in narrowing down what career path they would like to pursue.” For his second internship, Jordan would like to work in a college athletic department.

The internship program was definitely something that caught my attention right away about Endicott, because internships cover the intangibles that cannot be taught in a classroom – and I will have three work experiences to add to my resume after graduation.

INTERNSHIP: ANNA JACQUES HOSPITAL • NEWBURYPORT, MASSACHUSETTS

STUDENT INTERN

Kaitlin Bresnahan ’14 Haverhill, Massachusetts

MAJOR

Nursing

SITES

Anna Jacques Hospital: Maternity Newburyport, Massachusetts

Boston Medical Center: Pediatrics Boston, Massachusetts Salem Hospital: Mental Health Salem, Massachusetts

INTERNSHIP

“ 22

“Throughout my nursing program, I have been drawn to labor and delivery,” says Kaitlin, “and my recent clinicals have confirmed my choice. I loved working with new parents at Anna Jacques, and of course I loved working with the babies!” One of her career goals is to work in a neo-natal ICU. During her pediatrics rotation at Boston Medical Center, Kaitlin was pleased to gain first-hand experience in a pediatric ICU; and for her mental health rotation, she helped run therapy groups and wrap-up sessions for adult patients about to leave the hospital. “It wasn’t an area of nursing I plan to pursue,” she says, “but it was interesting to see a different side of nursing.” Kaitlin is considering Endicott’s Fifth Year Nursing Program. “I’d like to earn a Master’s degree in nursing education,” she says.

Every internship exposes you to something different – not only what you are doing but where you are doing it. I have worked in small hospitals and large medical centers, and every experience has been a valuable opportunity.


INTERNSHIP: OFFICE OF THE MAYOR • BEVERLY, MASSACHUSETTS

STUDENT INTERN

Shane Wilson ’15 New Milford, Connecticut

MAJOR

Political Science

SITE

Office of the Mayor Beverly, Massachusetts

INTERNSHIP

An internship in the Office of the Mayor for the City of Beverly gave Shane an opportunity to work with an array of city departments – veteran’s affairs, planning, engineering, and purchasing to name a few. “I saw how inter-connected the process of government is, and I saw the Mayor’s Office as the focal point for decision making. I became very interested in government, and for my next internship, I’d like to work for a congressman or senator.”

An ROTC candidate at Endicott, Shane will join the Army as a second lieutenant upon graduation. After four years of active duty and four years in reserves, he’d like to explore politics and the law. “Internship is a great teaching tool,” he says. “It helps you discover what you like and don’t like about various careers. Then you have the opportunity to confirm your path or change it.”

I found that the combination of academic study and internship continually brings learning full circle. You are able to see what you learned in a previous class applied in a real world setting, and later what you learned during your internship gives you a deeper understanding of your next set of courses. 23

CAMPUS LIFE Sharing Great Times

with Great Friends

“Interesting, colorful, dynamic, varied, comfortable, challenging, unpredictable, unforgettable, memorable.” Pick as many adjectives as you like, and you’ll begin to draw a picture of campus life at Endicott. No two students experience life here at the same pace, with the same people, in the same way. That is as it should be. Your life outside the classroom will be as interesting and varied as you choose to make it.

ERICO LOPEZ

Hometown: Boston, Massachusetts

“ 26

An International Business major, student athlete, and member of the Class of 2005, MBA ’07, Erico reflects on his experience with the following message:

I will always remember the chimes of College Hall ringing in the hour as I walked to class on a crisp fall day, the salty smell of the ocean as I walked outside my freshman residence hall on a blustery winter morning, the beautiful orange and red sunsets over Endicott beach as I got in a game of catch with my friends, and the glow of a full moon that looks like it’s practically touching the water as it illuminates the whole campus. Each of these memories, along with numerous others, will be with me forever.

Much of your life here will center around your experiences in the College’s remarkably diverse residence halls. Pick your setting: large traditional residence hall, small house, or gracious old mansion; then move to a modern townhouse or apartment-style

residence hall in your next years. Change your College “home” each year as your interests change. As an Endicott student, you will soon discover the advantages of living and learning at a dynamic coeducational College. You will form lasting friendships while enjoying unique opportunities to lead or to follow — the choice is yours. Speaking of choices, the residence life staff and student activities calendar will keep you well informed on upcoming activities and events — from comedy nights to dance parties, jazz bands to rock concerts, notable speakers to art exhibits.


Endicott’s 235 acre oceanfront campus boasts three beaches and is noted as one of the most scenic colleges in America. ▲

BOST


TON The College Town

Boston, just 20 miles to the south of Endicott, is home to scores of colleges and thousands of college students. Whether you catch a ride with a friend or take the train/shuttle/“T” option, it won’t take long to reach the world’s most exciting college town. Boston is Faneuil Hall and Copley Place, Newbury Street and Harvard Square, Fenway Park (home of the 2004 and 2007 World Champion Red Sox), and the TD Garden (home to the 17-time World Champion Celtics and the 2011 Stanley Cup Champion Bruins), concerts and plays, restaurants, shopping and sightseeing. Boston is, well, Boston!

Boston is not the only popular off-campus destination. You may join friends for a ski trip to New Hampshire or a shopping expedition at L.L. Bean in Freeport, Maine. Finding something interesting to do in your free time is never a problem at Endicott.


If you crave serious athletic

competition, then suit up for the blue and green on one of the College’s

varsity teams: baseball, basketball, cross country, equestrian, field

hockey, football, men’s golf, lacrosse, soccer, softball, tennis, volleyball.

Varsity teams compete at the NCAA

Division III level and are members of

the Commonwealth Coast Conference (CCC). In addition, club sports

include: cheerleading, crew, dance, ice hockey, rugby, and sailing. Just

want a chance to get some fresh air

and unwind? Then join more than 80% of all our students who participated last year in our intramural or

recreational activities, which include: wiffle ball, tae kwon do, kickboxing, soccer, women’s self defense,

racquetball, aerobics, basketball (5 on 5, 3 on 3), strength and fitness

training, volleyball, arena football, flag football, floor hockey, and

softball. The Post Center includes

fitness, dance, weight and aerobic rooms; racquetball courts; locker

rooms; a competition gymnasium

seating 1,200; and a field house with a suspended running track and

traversing wall. A 3,030-seat stadium, a fully-equipped softball complex,

and newly renovated, synthetic turf North Field are the most recent

additions to our athletic facilities. 30


ATHLETICS It’s Game Time!

If your athletic interests run to the spontaneous, then make good use of the

College’s tennis courts, athletic fields, and Post Athletic Center. They’re open to all students from early morning to late in the evening. Whatever your abilities or inclinations, you’ll discover that you can always be active and involved at

Endicott — knowing the satisfaction of giving it your best, learning from losing as well as winning, strengthening old friendships and forming new ones, and returning to your residence hall refreshed and invigorated.

31


ACTIVITIES Something Exciting

for Everyone

Reflect, for a moment, on those activities in your life when you’ve really focused on something, when you’ve worked along with others towards a common goal, when time stood still. In addition to producing sheer enjoyment, such experiences probably led to a better understanding of yourself and others. At Endicott, you’ll have plenty of opportunities to know the exhilaration of total involvement. You might want to experience democracy in action by working with the Student Government Association. You might help bring big-name entertainers and speakers to

32

campus as a member of the Campus Activities Board (CAB). Past attractions have included Howie Day, Bob Dylan, Robert Palmer, Coretta Scott King, Cathy Rigby, Billy Joel, The Roots, JeanMichel Cousteau, Gavin Degraw, Jack Levin, Guster, and Common. You might learn about creative expression while writing for the Endicott Review, the literary magazine, the Endicott Observer, the campus newspaper, or journalistic teamwork while helping put together the campus TV news program. You’ll find plenty to do here (see list of activities) and, most important, have a great time in the process.
