Your Bay Path Recent Alumni Ambassador
When she agreed to visit Bay Path University from Branford, Connecticut, in her junior year, Brianna Nobile '16 was doing it for her mom. She knew this was not a university she was interested in—or so she thought.
Once she experienced a Bay Path overnight stay for prospective students, Brianna knew immediately this was the place for her.
She applied the summer before her senior year of high school and has never looked back. In fact, Brianna only applied to Bay Path. The small class sizes, combined with the students she met and her immediate connections with professors, made it easy for her to see herself immersed in all Bay Path had to offer for her next four years. And immersed she was!
Brianna was an orientation leader, residence advisor, member of the Law Club, and a senior class delegate. Academically, she excelled by making the dean’s list, and she was inducted into the Maroon Key Honor Society member and Lambda Epsilon Chi Association.
A legal studies major, Brianna attributes her foundation at Bay Path to her current career success. She particularly credits now-retired Professor Ann Dobmeyer for her guidance, and the incredible experience she had in her junior year in spring 2015, when she participated in the Justice in Law program in Washington, D.C. This semester-long offering was a combination of hands-on career, business, and classroom experience that helped Brianna set her sights on her future.
Brianna later received her Juris Doctor from Roger Williams University School of Law, passing the bar exam in July 2019 on her first try.
Currently, she works as a Superior Court Law Clerk with the Connecticut Judicial Branch, a position she started remotely during the pandemic. She loves the work she is doing, which entails research, writing, and attending meetings, with and for staff attorneys and judges. When the courts return to session, she looks forward to meeting her colleagues in person.
Brianna is excited to focus on giving her time back to Bay Path. A new member of the Alumni Association Council and newly named the Recent Alumni Ambassador, she looks forward to connecting with other recent alumni and helping current Bay Path students by giving advice, connecting, and mentoring—just as alumni did for her when she was here.
Her advice to our current students is, “Don't be afraid of what you don’t know; Bay Path will be right there with you.”
Brianna also understands the power of giving back. During senior week, she was part of a gathering in Breck Suite when the senior gift was presented to the University. The stories from other students about the significance of scholarships in their lives made her realize the importance of giving back. She realized she was fortunate—she didn’t need to worry about tuition while a student at Bay Path. While listening to her friends, she understood the lasting impact her gift could make for others.
