“When I first stepped on campus I honestly felt like it was home. People were so nice to me. They opened doors for me. They're all smiling. When I saw the students they were all accepting of each other, asking each other questions. And they made me actually feel like I was a Curry student even though they knew I was still a high school student.”

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.
