“My experience at Curry College was the best four years of my life. The reassurance from professors that I could be successful in this field was invaluable. Getting my degree and shaking the president's hand at graduation was the ultimate accomplishment. I'm amazed at the Curry professors who remain interested in what I'm doing. They share professional opportunities and continue to wish me well. I couldn't ask for more.”
