Millennial students are just as interested in sustainability as businesses.

Rick Oches, chair of the Department of Natural and Applied Sciences, in our latest IMPACT article.  To help our students pursue careers such as those in sustainability we’ve created a fusion of the arts and sciences with business, developing relevant courses that prepare them for the changing business landscape.

Being an International Student at Bentley

Have you checked out the Tumblrs from some Bentley undergrads yet? Here’s one of the recent ones, from one of our international students:

Coming from the Middle East and living in Boston has been an amazing, transformational experience. I remember right before the start of my first semester of freshman year being excited and anxious about the overall move. Everything was exciting and new to me and it felt like I was experiencing…

As many Falcons begin heading off for Spring Break today, re-blogging this seemed like a good way to mark just what a loooooong, cold winter it has felt like this year throughout New England. Have a great break, Falcons!

Hello! Obviously Bentley is a business school, but are there non-business or semi-business courses available (such as Psychology, Graphic Design, Statistics, Photography, Philosophy, English, Interior or Fashion Design, etc.)?

Hello!

Bentley stresses the fusion of business and liberal arts, so there are definitely a great number of non-business courses available.  For example, this coming semester we have Sports Psychology, Digital Photography, Jane Austen in Fiction & Film, Creative Writing: Drama and Screen Writing, Philosophy of Work, and many others.  You can see a full listing of the courses offered in Spring 2014 here: http://www.bentley.edu/offices/sites/www.bentley.edu.offices/files//registrar/201401-undergrad-sched.pdf

Another thing that might interest you is our Liberal Studies Major (LSM).  The LSM is an optional double major meant to enhance your business major by focusing your general education requirements around one subject.  There are 7 concentrations at the moment, ranging from Health and Industry to Global Perspectives to Media Arts and Society.  You can get more information at http://www.bentley.edu/academics/lsm-concentrations

Hope this helped, and thank you for your interest in Bentley!

On October 26, 300 students from 29 schools, some from as far away as Texas, joined together at Bentley for a day-long Diversity Summit with Dr. Maura J. Cullen.  Students spent the day discussing how to embrace the differences around us, the “8 Things Not to Say” (from Dr. Cullen’s book 35 Dumb Things Well-Intended People Say), the BAR reaction (“breathe, acknowledge, respond”), and more.  Bentley sponsored more than 30 students to attend the event, and many more students volunteered.  The day also featured a special performance by Bentley’s F.I.R.E. Step Squad.

Falcons of all ages flew back to the nest for #BentleyHomecoming on October 18-20, 2013. Alumni and students reunited with old friends, celebrated the winners of the #HBDFlex campaign at Falcon Fest, played games around campus, rooted for the Falcons at the Homecoming football game, and ate plenty of delicious food to make for a great weekend!

Bentley Service-Learning students teamed up with the residents of Prospect Hill, the City of Waltham, Brandeis University, KaBoom!, UnitedHealthcare, The New England Revolution, and The New England Patriots to build a kid-designed playground at Prospect Hill in Waltham last week.  Great job, volunteers!

What makes Bentley beautiful? Gorgeous fall days help, sure—but even better are the faculty and staff flash mobs that seem to be becoming an annual tradition. Check out the action that took place yesterday between classes outside the Library.

Preparing for Move-In Day

We asked for some packing advice from our seasoned students and parents to ensure our new Falcons don’t forget any must-have items.  Here are some of the best suggestions:

  • Shower slippers
  • Deodorant
  • Family photos
  • Toothbrush and toothpaste
  • Rain jacket
  • Power strips (remember, no extension cords allowed in the dorms!)
  • Running shoes and gym clothes for the gym
  • A pillow
  • Business attire (slacks, blouses, dress shirts, etc.)
  • Ear plugs or noise cancelling headphones
  • Alarm clock
  • An agenda or calendar
  • Command hooks and Velcro strips
  • Tissues
  • Mini fridge and microwave
  • First aid kit
  • Soft blanket
  • Flash drive
  • Tool kit
  • Printer and paper

They also suggested some items that aren’t as easy to pack, including a sense of humor, self-esteem, ambition, and an open mind.  What’s on your packing list for this Fall?
