“The connections you can make in Boston, as well as the opportunities in the surrounding areas here, are second to none in the media industry. Being at Curry, there are so many different ways to get your foot in the door early, at places like NESN, The Boston Globe and Gillette Stadium, home of the New England Patriots and Revolution.”

Curry College Equestrian Places 5th at National Championship Competition
May 7, 2013
Jamie DeBenedictis (Class of 2015) of the Curry College Equestrian Club team placed 5th at the National Championship competition on May 3-6 in Hershey Park, Pennsylvania. She was the first Curry equestrian to represent the College at Nationals.
The Curry Nursing major earned the spot with her second place finishes in the recent Regional and Zone Championships. She was one of only two student-athletes representing Zone 1 at Nationals.
"Competing at the National Championships was a complete dream come true! It shows that hard work really does pay off. Just making it as far as Regionals and Zones was such an accomplishment to me, but making it all the way to Nationals and placing fifth in the nation was just amazing. I still have a hard time processing it all," said DeBenedictis.
"I couldn't have done it without the support from my amazing family and friends, my talented teammates and my incredible coach Betsy Kupic."
This is her first year competing on the Curry College Equestrian team. Congrats to Jamie!
