Professor Rondon takes 1st place!

Congrats to Associate Professor and Ph.D. student Yelenna Rondon on winning the best lightning talk award and taking first place for a graduate student from the UMass Lowell College of Education for her research into how students fare when they start out at a community college, compared to a four-year public or private college.

Yelenna, a Ph.D. student, found that students who start at community colleges are less likely to complete their bachelor’s degrees within six years.  But if they do, they earn as much as those who started and finished at a four-year school.



George Craig is retiring!

George Craig, Auxiliary Services, is retiring after 42+ years at the College!  His last day is Wednesday, August 28.  We all wish George the best on his retirement and the start of his new life chapter!  Thanks for the memories.  Remember, the only person that is truly happy on a Monday morning is a retired person!
