Faculty-Student Interaction in the classroom, representing the answer to the question 'Why Curry?'

Personal Attention, Experiential Learning

Many colleges look the same, but not all colleges are the same, and Curry College is distinct and special for a number of reasons. The focus we provide on personal attention and experiential learning are not just things we do, but attributes at which we excel, in a way that sets Curry apart from other colleges.

But don't just take our word for it. The National Survey for Student Engagement (NSSE) rates Curry College better than peer institutions in areas that reflect personal attention, career-focused education, and community engagement. See the latest NSSE results below.
