Overview

Small Classes Allow Faculty to Identify Student Talents

The faculty and administration of Curry College design academic programs to support student success. The small classes at this New England College enable instructors to identify student strengths and talents. With an average class size of 19 and a 10:1 student- faculty ratio, professors are able to directly relate with class members.

Small classes create an interactive setting, where students communicate with their professor and peers. The faculty and professionals on staff also act as mentors inside and outside the classroom. Students are encouraged to meet frequently with advisors who know them as individuals as well. Curry's emphasis on small class sizes helps foster these mentoring relationships.

Programs of study are supported by the academic resources and personalized attention to advance student excellence, such as the Academic Enrichment Center for tutoring. For those students desiring additional challenges, there are Honors Programs, including one designed especially for first-year students. Recognizing that individual learning styles differ, Curry College even allows students to develop their own majors customized to personal interests. With personalized programs and small class sizes that create a cohesive learning community, Curry's goal is to ensure students are educated as unique individuals.

Social and Cultural Vitality of Boston Is Minutes from Curry College

Curry College's wooded, 135-acre Milton campus is one of the most attractive small college campuses in New England. It's a location offering the best of worlds to students, just minutes away from Boston's multiple intellectual, entertainment, and career-oriented opportunities. This proximity to the city will allow students to participate in a diverse and rewarding number of internships during their time at Curry. Students can also explore Boston's various cultural attractions, including the Museum of African-American History, Harvard Museum of Natural History, the Museum of Science, or New England Aquarium. They may want to soak in the wonder of the Boston Ballet Company or Boston Pops Orchestra. Sports fans can enjoy the Red Sox, Bruins, Celtics, and Patriots. While those who like the outdoors will be glad to know that Curry is less than two miles from the scenic Blue Hills, a natural reservation which offers skiing, hiking, horseback riding, and a range of resources for environmental education and recreation.

Student Center Hub of Campus Services and Activities

Events to enrich Curry College student life are organized through a Student Activities office, which works with organizations to plan entertainment and cultural activities. Student life organizations include academic, communications, service, social, and sports groups.

Students may get involved with student government or serve on a campus board that plans everything from game nights to day trips. Curry's community service group helps those in need, communication majors contribute to the yearbook or campus radio, and competition heats up with NCAA Division III athletics and intramural sports. From international clubs to theatre, student life holds many social and intellectual possibilities.

Curry College is proud of its Student Center designed as a central hub for campus life. With more than 80,000 square feet, the Student Center supports extracurricular and co-curricular activities. A gymnasium and state-of-the-art fitness center support health and wellness. When hunger calls, the center offers a roomy dining hall. Students discuss their days in a lounge with a homelike atmosphere or in the coffee cafe, sports cafe, or game room. Clubs have access to meeting areas, and students find solace in the chapel.

The Student Center is designed to provide vital services in one place, including a post office and bookstore. Outside the center, an amphitheatre-style meeting area invites students to connect between classes in this central campus location.
