“"When students first meet their orientation leaders, they're usually very quiet. But it's the role of their orientation leader to get them comfortable with each other, make friends, participate in the different activities. If students have any questions they should feel like they can ask that question without being judged or that they shouldn't ask - there is no such thing as a dumb question when it comes to orientation.”

At Curry College, you'll be able to take advantage of numerous special programs that will enhance your learning. Among them are the following:
Program for Advancement of Learning (PAL Program)
The internationally recognized Program for Advancement of Learning (PAL) at Curry College is a structured support program providing assistance to bright, college-able students with specific learning disabilities and/or AD/HD. PAL has been widely recognized as the country's first college program of its kind and for its leadership role over the years. Since its inception, PAL has focused on providing comprehensive, strength-based support to college students with learning disabilities in a proactive environment.
This 2-credit course is taught by an interdisciplinary team of faculty and student instructors and is a great way for students to transition to college. While in the course, students will learn about their own personality and learning style, campus resources, time management, relationships, wellness and decision making, while strengthening their academic skills and potential for college success.
Curry College offers two Honors Programs, each tailored to the learning context of Honors students. The First Year Honors Program, open to Curry scholarship winners and to students whose high school record demonstrates a capacity for high academic achievement, provides to first year students an opportunity to form a learning community on a core topic with peers, faculty, and student mentors. The Honors Scholar Program is offered to sophomore, junior, and senior students that ultimately leads to the presentation of an Honor Thesis. In addition to GPA or departmental honors, Honors Scholars are graduated "With Distinction in the Honors Scholar Program" announced at commencement and inscribed on their diploma.
Internships are facilitated through the Center for Career Development. If eligible, you'll be able to experience the world of work, for academic credit, in a variety of settings, from large television and radio stations to smaller not-for-profit startups. Supervision is provided by onsite managers and by Curry faculty. All academic majors may participate. Here's a great chance to get a jump-start on your career!
