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.

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!

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.
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.
Two days ago, Endicott made an exciting announcement – regarding a goal that many people have been working hard to… read more
