College Snap Shots

In an effort to provide Burlington High School students and their families with relevant and up-to-date college information, the Guidance Staff will be visiting various colleges and universities and providing you with information. The colleges visited do not represent a preference on the part of the BHS Guidance Department towards any particular school.

In the college search process, many things are taken into consideration. Things that are considered, but not limited to are: campus size, location, number of students on campus, majors, tuition, distance from home, athletic programs, clubs and other activities. When considering a college, students must also make realistic decisions based on personal interest, grades, test scores, etc.

The department feels that the college visit is an integral part of the process, and we strongly encourage students to visit any and all schools that interest them, especially if these schools are fairly close by. The information we provide is only a small snapshot into each respective college. We hope to add information about other schools in the future, and as always we appreciate any feedback that you have that would help us provide our students and their families useful information in the sometimes overwhelming college search process.

Furthermore we ask that students also research colleges by using their Naviance accounts and scheduling meetings with their counselor on a consistent basis. Please feel free to contact your son or daughter's individual counselor if you have any further questions.

Snapshot:   Dean is a small, friendly campus set right in the heart of Franklin, Mass.  Its streets blend right in with streets in town.  The main buildings were impressive, especially the student center, where students gather for activities, such as watching the tally of the last Presidential election, studying and going to dining halls.  Some of the facilities, such as the athletic fields, seemed a bit old and in need of sprucing up, but the feeling on campus was warm and inviting. It seems apparent that all students on campus get a lot of support and attention.  The performing arts department is also well-known, especially the dance program. There were many performing arts events being advertised on campus.

Dean College has a great relationship with the Patriots organization. Our college tour included      
tickets for counselors, students and Dean personnel and professors.
