“There is incredible technology in the lab and as a prospective student visiting Curry, I knew I would want to get involved in the lab at some point during my undergraduate career. I learned experimental Psychology, had peer teaching opportunities, experience in the lab, and exposure to many other areas of Psychology. I completely loved it here.”

U.S. Marshal Visits Campus to Speak in Criminal Law Class
On Monday, February 24, 2014, United States Marshal John Gibbons visited Curry College to speak in Professor Ed Allan's Criminal Law class.
Having served in the Massachusetts State Police for 27 years (and reaching the rank of Lt. Detective), Marshal Gibbons was appointed by President Obama, after recommendations for the post from Senator Kerry and (the late) Senator Kennedy. He was sworn in in 2011 and leads the US Marshals office in the Commonwealth, supervising more than three dozen deputy marshals. The US Marshals Office is responsible for the federal witness protection program, security of federal courthouses, and transportation of and housing for federal inmates.
Marshal Gibbons spent more than two hours with students, discussing his experience in law enforcement, and taking questions from the class. The event was sponsored by the CJ Honors Society and is part of their efforts to bring in criminal justice leaders to campus to discuss current topics.
