“I will forever be grateful for everything Caldwell has given me over the last four years. A lot of what I learned, inside and outside of the classroom, came from the brilliant faculty at Caldwell. I would not be the person I am today without all the amazing things they have done for me! Time and again staff went out of their way to make sure I was in good standing, or added insight to help me overcome any obstacle I faced. I am thrilled and blessed to start my journey this Fall at Boston College in pursuit of my M.S in Sports Administration, as well as working game days for the New England Patriots. Caldwell University, you have surpassed all expectations, and I will continue to build on the foundations you laid out for me in all my future endeavors. I will never forget you!”
