We sat down with James Daley, Assistant Athletic Trainer, Amanda Finnegan, Administrative Assistant to the School of Business, and Dr. Mark Herlihy, Associate Dean of Arts & Sciences, to talk about all things Boston Marathon 2013. We are so proud of their accomplishments and are very much looking forward to doing it again next year!
Endicott’s Brendan Cronin, Operations Manager and Assistant Professor in the Hospitality Management program, is known on campus for not only his culinary abilities, but his enthusiasm for teaching the finer points of hospitality and restaurant services.
Brendan also recently released his first book – half memoir, half cookbook, Cheffin’: From Potatoes to Caviar takes readers on a journey through Chef Cronin’s life, beginning in Ireland and roaming through kitchens worldwide.
Student Emily Pineau is the first to appear in Ibbetson Street Press’ Young Poet Series.
This year, Endicott College has been presented with an exciting opportunity that is the first of its kind for the College. The John Hancock Boston Marathon Non-Profit Program has awarded Endicott with three guaranteed entries into the historic Boston Marathon! As part of the marathon sponsorship each year, John Hancock provides local non-profit organizations with entries into the race, which can help create a significant fundraising opportunity and great exposure for a non-profit cause.
We are happy to announce that Emily Dyer, MA in Interior Design 2012, was awarded the ASID Foundation’s Joel Polsky Academic Achievement Award for her MA Thesis, “Dwelling in The Home: Designing for Mindfulness, Connection and Well-being.”
We’re constantly amazed by the amount of volunteer work that goes on around campus and in the community, both among students and faculty/staff. To help recognize participants for their efforts and passion, we created a new event this year: the E.C.O. (Endicott Club & Organization) Awards. Organized and hosted by Endicott College Student Activities (ECSA), the April 11 evening event allowed us to turn the spotlight on those who work hard to plan events, offer support, and enhance our community. Please join us in congratulating all of the nominees and winners!
See what milestones are recently been achieved by our active faculty – and as always, you can visit our Faculty Accomplishments webpage for additional, regularly-updated listings.
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). While the Potter fan in us is quite excited about this class, the literary student will be busy as well.
Here at Endicott we’re quite proud of our faculty – all of whom are constantly busy not only teaching and advising students and contributing to the College, but also furthering their own studies and accomplishments. Please join us in congratulating those listed below for some of their most recent accolades:
As of this fall, Endicott now offers a Security Studies minor, which covers issues related to homeland and national security at the undergraduate level. It also opens the door for additional graduate studies of this relevant topic that is rapidly gaining popularity in higher education.
