Strong of Spirit

News & Events

Nicole Tarzia is a born fighter.

She entered this world prematurely, so much so that doctors at first feared she would not live to see the outside of the hospital. She did, but her prognosis remained bleak. The predictions were that she would never sit up, walk or talk, and might suffer developmental issues. At six months, the diagnosis of Nicole Tarzia’s condition officially became quadriplegic spastic cerebral palsy.

None of this has stood in her way.

Return on Investment

News & Events

Dr. Frank Cullen, ’72, is an internationally respected researcher, author and educator who knows that among the keys to success in his chosen field of criminal justice is the opportunity to do research and a good mentor. This knowledge helped feed his desire to establish the first-ever scholarship to benefit criminal justice students at his alma mater.

Doggone Stress

News & Events

The end of any semester can be stressful for students, faculty and administrators alike. Sometimes a helping hand – or paw – can make all the difference.

This is the idea behind a pet-populated stress-free zone set up in room 200 of the Rondileau Campus Center. The pets are therapy dogs, and students can stop by for some quality time with a therapist of the four legged variety.
