Amber Soucy '13 applied to several colleges when looking at Nursing programs, but when it came down to making a decision, the choice was clear. "I was directly accepted into the Curry Nursing program...I received better scholarships from Curry...and I would also get to start my clinical rotations during sophomore year, so I would gain that real world experience right off the bat."
"I chose Curry. Another school had recruited me, but Curry had an excellent football program and more; a small campus that's still close to the big city; small classes that would let me achieve my potential; and of course, a team that fills the stands every game."
A community...that's how Heather Flaherty '14 describes Curry College. And, the junior Psychology major has fully immersed herself into this community.

Helping people is in Julia Jacobs' blood...literally. She eventually followed in her father's footsteps by becoming both a volunteer firefighter and certified Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) while in high school.

When Education major Isabelle Abrams '13 was considering which college to attend, the helpful Admission staff at Curry College made it an easy choice. "The Curry Admissions team spent so much time with me during my interview - we talked for over an hour. After that, I knew I would not be a number here."
"I can't say enough about the Education program. I am so close with all of my professors...I'm always emailing and meeting with them. And the small class sizes are great - it's so personal. I love it!"
"The experience, contacts, and overall knowledge I gained during my internship at Senator (John) Kerry's Office have really helped to prepare me for post-graduation life."

After working with an aunt with a mental disability when she was in high school, Michelle Pritchard '12 knew teaching people with special needs was her calling.
"I looked at bigger nursing schools, but I realized the best option for me was a smaller school where professors know who you are. I also wanted a school with ties to Boston, because the city offers some of the best hospitals and clinical sites in the United States."
"What's great about Curry is that you can get involved from day one. By the first week of my freshman year, I already had a shift working at the radio station (WMLN) every Sunday. I got to call my first game (women's basketball) as a color commentator that spring."
"Preparation." That is the term Sarah Nix '12 uses to summarize her internship experience at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute while a student at Curry College.

I feel like I really found my place."
"My passion is helping others," says Natalie Petit, who graduated from Curry College in 2012 with a double major in Criminal Justice and Politics and History.
