Harry Potter has come to Endicott! Next Fall, Professor Rich Nastasi will be teaching LST377 – Critical Perspectives in Harry Potter (or, as Professor Nastasi likes to call it, The Course that Lived Come to Die).

I have to admit, I was caught a bit off guard when asked to take on the Editor-in-Chief position of the Endicott Observer this year—I had only been a part of the school newspaper staff for one short year prior, and let’s just say I was far from my journalistic prime.

Travis left all of the Endicott students that attended his event with the feeling of inspiration. Travis Roy taught us that anything is possible regardless of the challenges life may present; the only thing that matters is if you decide to conquer the challenge or let the challenge conquer you.
On September 6 Endicott College will begin its new academic year – how the summer has flown by! Below is some information about our incoming students, the changes we’ve made over the summer, and the upgrades that are still to come.
Each year Endicott surveys the most recent graduating class to find out where our graduates are employed and continuing their education. Data collection starts six months after graduation and continues for several months.

The Endicott Alumni Mentoring Program matches Endicott undergrads with successful alumni working in their fields for one-on-one career mentoring. Mentors help students learn more about their fields, and in turn, students update mentors on campus life and re-acquaint them with the campus community. Read on to learn about the mentorships of Amanda Schubert and Kirsten Smith, who both graduated this past spring.
At Summer Orientation this past weekend, our Student Affairs folks and the New Student Mentors used a fun new tool to interact with attending students. The website PollEverywhere.com allowed presenters at orientation to collect instant feedback via text on a variety of subjects from ‘what will you miss the most when you leave home?’ to ‘how often are you on Facebook?’ Interspersed with conversations about make good decisions, setting expectations, learning new things, and settling in amidst a new environment and a new community, these polls tell us a bit about what issues are important to incoming college students. Read on for some examples, and thanks again to all for a spectacularly successful orientation!
