MassBay Community College 50th Anniversary
by Geoff Birmingham
Just a quick shout-out to MassBay Community College, which is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year. Because we’re helping them produce a video to celebrate the event, we’ve had the chance to hear numerous stories of students who have benefited from their MassBay experience.
Many of the stories are about students who didn’t succeed in school until MassBay gave them a chance, and then they thrived. A big factor in their success clearly is the caring, dedicated faculty and administration. But the diversity of the student population goes way beyond kids who struggled in high school – in addition to racial and ethnic diversity, there’s young and old, local and international, inner-city and suburban.
Hanging out on campus is a fun experience, because MassBay has such a vibrant community.
