Curry College today announced that the historic Cordage Park will be the new home for its Plymouth campus, which will welcome students back for the fall semester on August 31.
The new campus features a modern open learning space layout with smart technology to facilitate traditional, hybrid, and online classes. The new campus will also house new skills and simulation labs for its growing Accelerated Nursing Program, including a clinical observation room.
"We could not be more excited to welcome our students back," says Anne Berriault, Director of Continuing Education and Graduate Enrollment for the Plymouth Campus. "We know that our new campus at Cordage Park will only continue to contribute to our vibrant community and expand on our exciting educational opportunities leading our students to successful graduate outcomes."
The relocation from its 20 North Park Avenue address positions the satellite campus favorably for expanding its continuing education, graduate, and professional development offerings for community members on the South Shore and throughout Cape Cod. Serving area residents has grown in importance as more area college students, professionals, and adult learners are looking to study at schools that are closer to home or work.
"In these challenging times, it is more important now than ever that we serve our students' unique needs by expanding our program offerings and course schedules," adds Berriault. “This flexibility is especially important for students who may be pursuing a gap year but still want to take some courses to help them reach their ultimate educational goals.”
Over the past 25 years since the opening of the Plymouth campus, more than 2,000 non-traditional Continuing Education and Graduate students have graduated from Curry there, earning their degrees from one of the 11 programs now available. With the new campus, the College expects that number to continue to climb as a result of key partnerships with area transfer colleges, including Cape Cod Community College, Quincy College, Massasoit Community College, and Roxbury Community College, upon which their graduates can enroll at Curry with full acceptance of associated degree credits, helping to bring more students one step closer to their career goals.
