On May 19, 2012, Endicott held its 72nd Commencement on a beautiful, sunny day on our athletic field. With 750 students graduating, we had families joining us from near and far as campus filled up with celebrating friends and relations. It was a joyous occasion and we are proud to welcome yet another class into our ‘flock’ of Endicott College Alumni.

Following the Baccalaureate on Friday, May 18, we held our Awards ceremony to recognize some of our outstanding students for their accomplishments. Please join us in congratulating all the recipients on all of their hard work!
