They’re amazing!

Academic Achievement Day was held on April 11.

Our students are amazing.

Every April, we celebrate their accomplishments during Academic Achievement Day. This year was no different.

From poster presentations to panels to talks, over 100 students shared their achievements with alumni, faculty, staff, friends, and family. One of the highlights of the day was the ribbon-cutting ceremony for the newly renovated science labs in Carr 209 and Carr 313. The space transformations were made possible by the generosity of longtime Bay Path champion, Eileen Stern; the University and the many soon-to-be women scientists in our undergraduate program are grateful for her support. 

It was a Carpe Diem day.

For over 25 years, Eileen Stern has been a dedicated member of our Bay Path community. At the ribbon cutting, she was joined by the Stern and WiSH (Women in STEM Honors) Scholars, a grateful community of budding women scientists who offered her their heartfelt thanks.

Dr. Diane Hall’s Domestic Violence class was front and center with its Clothesline Project. The class partnered with the Holyoke-based Alianza, which offers support for people whose lives are affected by domestic violence, and worked with Bay Path alumna Emily Pelletier Skoczylas ’11, the education and outreach coordinator of the organization, on the project.
Alumni and friends gathered for a breakfast in Empsall Hall to celebrate the successful completion of the Vision Forward fundraising initiative.

The highlight of the day was the student presentations.
