President’s Message

Greetings to the Students of the Herd on the Hill,

Nichols College is on a march toward national prominence and on the move to becoming both a college of choice in New England and beyond!

On “The Hill,” leadership should be discovered, cultivated and celebrated, and we offer a wide range of curricular and co-curricular opportunities that excites the leadership potential in all students. Beginning in your first year, we give you a head start on the study and practice of leadership and prepare you to confidently market yourself to prospective employers. We focus on experiential learning. In fact, as your president, my goal is for EVERY Nichols student to have experiential learning opportunities, to include access to a range of competitive internships, high-impact, hands-on learning experiences embedded in coursework, professional consulting projects, research initiatives, Bloomberg certification, as well as an incredible student-managed investment fund and a strong foundation in data science and emerging technologies. These opportunities all prepare you for being “real world ready” upon completion of your studies here.

Beyond the classroom, the Emerging Leaders Program provides additional opportunities to advance your leadership training through special projects, experiences, travel, and speakers. In addition, the college offers 23 varsity sports programs, including our growing eSports team, and an array of clubs and student activities.

The Nichols experience is best described as a big family adventure. The entire team provides a welcoming and supportive community where students are encouraged to learn and grow under the guidance of a dedicated, world class faculty and staff – all of whom are committed to your success. We help you discover your passion(s) and guide you to channel that passion into a career. Additionally, we place an emphasis on fostering a diverse, equitable and inclusive learning and living environment to best prepare you for the working world you will enter upon graduation.

The alumni body numbers more than 15,000 and features countless stories of success and leadership, as presidents, CEOs, and business owners. Like them, your journey starts here. The first steps to a dynamic education ensuring you are “real world ready” are detailed in this catalog.

I look forward to meeting each and every one of you this fall and together, as a family, we will keep this Bison momentum moving. I ask that you all embrace greatness, and reject mediocrity, in everything you undertake, and live up to your potential each and every day.

Go Books. Go Bison.
