Massachusetts, which is conveniently located between Boston and
Providence, Rhode Island and is accessible to Boston by commuter
rail. The Dean College/Franklin station is only a five-minute walk
from campus. Approximately 87 percent of the College's student
population lives on campus.
Dean provides a supportive academic environment that thrives
on hands-on engagement and exceptional teaching. This
community-wide commitment of always going the extra mile for
students is known as The Dean Difference.
Outside of the classroom, students participate in 16 athletic teams
and more than 30 on-campus groups and organizations.
Ninety-six percent of our bachelor's degree students are
employed or enrolled in graduate school within 12 months of
graduation. Alumni are hard at work in top-ranked graduate programs
and are employed by organizations such as Universal Studios, Dell
Technologies, Liberty Mutual, Kraft Sports + Entertainment, the
Boston Ballet, and more.
What is The Dean Difference?
The Dean Difference isn't any one thing. It's not a program or a
professor. It's not a single class or a club. It's the way our
academics support networks and community overlap, interweave and
magnify each other. Our difference unites us. It's our secret
formula. It's the nucleus around which we orbit. It isn't one
thing, it's everything
