Endicott College is pleased to extend the present exhibition, Celebrating 75 Years! now on display through July 24, 2015 in the Halle Library Archive & Museum Gallery at Endicott College, 376 Hale Street, Beverly, MA. Gallery hours are Tuesday through Friday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Exhibit is free and open to the public.
After 75 years, Endicott’s mission is remarkably the same, “ . . . offering students a vibrant academic environment that remains true to its founding principle of integrating professional and liberal arts with experiential learning.” Remarkable, also, is the College’s continuing spirit to rise to a challenge, create new programs to suit the times, and invest in the resources our students need to succeed. From a two-year school for women, Endicott has grown into a coeducational college offering bachelor’s, master’s, and doctoral degrees. This exhibit takes you through the remarkable 75 years of growth and change of Endicott College.
From one Victorian house where students studied and lived, the Beverly campus has grown to 235 acres with 53 buildings. The College also operates academic centers in Boston and Gloucester, which bring degree programs and professional development options to new populations. Through its Van Loan School, the College offers programs overseas and at sites around New England, and online programs and courses are offered at the undergraduate and graduate levels.
Today’s students, like the students before them, come to Endicott to explore programs designed to give them the groundwork for meaningful careers. Over the years, art and communication degrees have expanded to include many disciplines. Interior design is now a challenging, nationally accredited undergraduate and graduate program. Tea room management was replaced with a broad range of hospitality programs with international reach. Programs in education, nursing, sports science and fitness studies, and business have attracted new students to the Endicott Model of education; and the entrepreneurial spirit is still evident as the College expands into the STEM disciplines (science, technology, engineering, and math).
