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.
As part of the Essex County Trails and Sails 10th Anniversary “Life and Legacy of Governor John Endicott in Essex County” program, the Endicott exhibit in the Halle Library shows why the Founders selected the name.
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.

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 summer issue (Volume 8, No. 3) of the journal for the Association for Science in Autism Treatment features an article from Dr. Thomas Zane, Professor of Education and Director of the Applied Behavior Analysis Online Program at The Van Loan School of Graduate and Professional Studies Institute for Behavioral Studies.

Yesterday we announced some exciting news – a new survey by The Chronicle of Higher Education named Endicott as one of the best colleges in the nation to work for.

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!
