With his expertise, Caleb will collaborate with Endicott College art students in assembling a wooden, quilt-like, montage.

After serving Endicott well over the last 50 years, we are saying goodbye to the West Classroom Building (formerly the Art Center). It was turned over to Windover Construction yesterday, who will begin dismantling the building to make way for a new chapter in Endicott’s story, the new building for Life Science and Business. When completed in summer of 2013 this new structure will usher a new era for the College. With 67,000 square feet of space to be used for business, computer science, math, and life sciences, the School of Business will have state-of-the-art classrooms, seminar rooms, team-building rooms, research facilities, and offices.

Today, up-to-date classroom hold nothing of the previous generation’s: rows of bolted down wooden lift top desks with an ink well, the Palmer Method cursive writing and personal typing classes, the excitement when you had a film and everyone filed into the auditorium for a special program or being called to the blackboard to do an arithmetic problem or conjugate a sentence. Everything has changed – whiteboards instead of blackboards, laptops instead of typewriters and smart wireless classrooms instead of screens and slide projectors. What’s next?
To celebrate the evolution of the classroom, Endicott College’s Archive and Museum is pleased to announce its next exhibit, School Days…They aren’t what they used to be! Read more

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. I quickly had to go from the quiet freshman, timid and unsure of her writing skills, to the main voice of each Tuesday night meeting. In over my head? Just a tad. Read more
