Graduation Countdown: Timelapse of the Graduation Set Up

Posted by ENC Student Life on Apr 28, 2017 7:07:00 AM

Graduation is just 1 week away! 

In 7 days seniors will be walking across the stage, receiving their diploma, and taking a final picture with Dr. McGee. In just under 150 hours you'll be taking pictures in your cap and gown with friends and family. Your 4 (or more) years of college have all been leading up to this special day and we are excited to watch each senior get recognized for their hard work. 

While you're off having breakfast or getting ready, the ENC facilities crew is hard at work setting up hundreds of chairs for your friends and family on Wolly lawn. This hyper lapse from a few years ago is still super mesmerizing. Can't Look. Away.

Spending Spring Break Serving Boston's Homeless

Posted by ENC Student Life on Apr 6, 2017 7:32:00 AM

For most people, "Spring Break" conjures images of wild parties, palm trees, and overindulgence. It's fair to say that most students prefer to spend their week away from class as far from campus and their academic responsibilities as possible. This year, four ENC students not only spent their spring break on campus, but they spent it ministering to those affected by homelessness in Boston. How's that for a change in perspective?

Meet the New RAs!

Posted by ENC Student Life on Mar 23, 2017 7:09:00 AM

As the 2016-2017 school year comes to a close we are sad to say goodbye to the Resident Assistants (RAs) who are graduating but we can't wait to welcome in some amazing new recruits! These new RAs will become the presence of Student Development in the dorms. They are paid to invest in students and help their peers have the best experience possible at ENC. What a terrific job!

We had a little party with our current and future RAs. Our graduating RAs got to pass on some wisdom to their incoming counterparts and we all had a great time. Ready to see who might be leading your floor next year?
