A group of 12 students and faculty from Bay State College left Monday morning for a 3 week Service Learning trip to the University of West Indies, Mona Campus in Kingston, Jamaica. This study abroad opportunity is a six credit course titled "Contemporary Problems: Study Abroad." As with all of our Service Learning trips, the group will be participating in some kind of service to the local community that they will be able to tie back into their course. We look forward to hearing all about it! The group arrived safely on Monday afternoon, May 18th, and Dr. William Morrissette checked in with some first impressions!
Bay State College’s 69th Annual Commencement Ceremony is just over a week away, and we could not be more proud of our 2015 graduates.
Commencement is a wonderful event where students from our Day, Evening and Online Divisions from both our Boston and Taunton campuses come together to celebrate all of their accomplishments. This week we caught up with one of our Taunton graduates, Faith Bulgar, as she picked up her cap and gown to prepare for the big event.
For the past 3 years, Bay State College has been granted access to hold a Criminal Justice course inside the Massachusetts Correctional Institution in Plymouth as part of the Inside Out Prisoner Exchange Program. The course, joining both incarcerated and non-incarcerated students, has gained popularity and is making a difference in the prison and the local community.
