When Kenley Preval, '15, transferred to Curry from a large university, he was looking for a more hands-on Biology program. He wanted to be able to work one-on-one with professors while developing his research in the medical field.
Alyxis Crompton '18 found her calling based on her experiences at a recent summer job. "I worked at a water park geared toward children with special needs; a lot of the kids had autism or used wheelchairs. After they'd go down the slide, they'd run to me and give me a hug. It really made me begin to see that I had a connection with them. Right then I realized I wanted to spend my life working with kids who have special needs."
A psychology major with a minor in community health and wellness, Jessica Lorento '16 was looking for an academic experience in which she could have one-on-one relationships with her professors. "When I first got to Curry I met the psychology professors and right away they were super friendly and welcomed me in; that's a huge reason why I came."
Caitlyn De Serres '18 attended a small high school in Vermont with a senior class of 100 students. So when it came time to explore prospective colleges, she knew she wanted to retain that close-knit community feel wherever she went.
Cameron Hoyt's passion for education began while working back home in Westfield, Massachusetts at his local YMCA. There, he worked in the Childcare Department, and the experience inspired him to come to Curry and study to become a kindergarten teacher.
"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."
Kylerr Bucano has taken the idea of community involvement to another level during his time at Curry College. From day one on campus, the criminal justice major from the Bronx, New York dove right into everything Curry has to offer.
When Giana DiCarlo '15 first came to Curry College she wasn't quite sure what path she wanted to take academically. But soon after stepping foot on campus in her first year, with the help of her "incredible" advisor, she decided on psychology...and she hasn't looked back.
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 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.”
"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."
"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."
