- About Curry
A member of the class of 2017 and a double major in criminal justice and politics and history, Jared Berman is an extremely passionate and motivated individual, who as a high school student ran for school committee in his hometown of Weymouth, Massachusetts. He narrowly lost the election, but was not swayed in his passion for involvement.
"I chose to transfer to Curry because I'd attended a large public university where my lecture classes ranged from 300-400 students. When I came to Curry I noticed how small the classes were, and that was really important to me."
"I can’t stress enough how amazing it is to have an opportunity to gain real world experience in the business world while still in school, especially at a company as well-known as Reebok.”
"During my four years as a graphic design major here at Curry, I've built up quite a portfolio. I put a lot of time and effort into it, and I think it's really paid off.""
"I really liked the atmosphere and the fact that Curry is near Boston," says Communication major Elena del Peral '16, explaining her decision to attend Curry. "But what really sold me here were the classroom sizes."
“I love Curry. I applied to five other schools. Coming here was definitely the best decision. At other colleges, you have one or two semesters of student teaching, and Curry gives you four to make sure that you really want to and are ready to teach.”
"I love being able to constantly be in contact with upperclassmen, underclassmen, and transfer students. I was an RA for transfer students as well and I felt like I really made a difference in helping them and welcoming them into the Curry community." - Resident Assistant Chelsey Kaiser '14
"When I first stepped on campus I honestly felt like it was home. People were so nice to me. They opened doors for me. They’re all smiling. When I saw the students they were all accepting of each other, asking each other questions. And they made me actually feel like I was a Curry student even though they knew I was still a high school student."
"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. "I've always felt right at home at Curry," Flaherty says. "The small class sizes and the opportunity to build connections with the faculty members were other reasons that helped me choose Curry."
Stacy Osorio ’14, an Information Technology major and Management minor from Pittsfield, Massachusetts has known since high school that she wanted to pursue a career in the IT field. “When I was looking for colleges I wanted to be near or in Boston because that is where I saw plenty of opportunities within the IT field.”
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. It was only logical that when she started looking at colleges, she would pursue a career in a similar field.
"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!"
"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."
The next big-time corporate television mogul could very well be Elton Silva '14, a double major in communication and management at Curry College. As a high school sophomore, Elton found himself in a TV production course, and he's been excited about all things television ever since.
