My liberal arts education here at Assumption College has helped me to become a well-rounded individual who understands concepts beyond my chosen discipline of Biology.

Mary Hilliger
Biology '15
Post-Grad Plans: PharmD candidate at Massachusetts College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences

Assumption provided an environment that positioned me for success. With ample opportunity to study in a variety of different subjects, I gained a well-rounded education that will enhance further educational and occupational experiences. When I decided to apply to Pharmacy School at MCPHS, I learned that because I can speak a foreign language I would have the opportunity to apply for international rotations in South America, which I am really excited to do!

Lauren Orrico
Spanish and English '09
Post-Grad Plans: Communications Project Coordinator at Amica Insurance

In the past few years, Amica Insurance has expanded its marketing activities in the Southwest and Northwest. Double majoring in English with a concentration in writing and mass communication and Spanish has given me a wonderful opportunity to provide insight from two perspectives, as a writer and as someone knowledgeable in the Spanish language and culture. As the company continues to work on this new initiative, I have the expertise to take part in the research and development.

Lauren McCarthy
Criminology '16
Internship: Administrative Clerk with the Litigation Attorney's Office

My internship was the turning point in my academic career.  By working with a poverty stricken population, I was able to apply my criminology background to understand more about this population’s past.  I quickly realized the interest I had in reducing and possibly preventing youth that fall into criminal crime.

Kimberly Urena

Internship: Intern with the Assumption College Campus Police and Assumption College Campus Advocate

Assumption has helped me break out of my shell and learn to speak my mine respectfully. The professors here have helped pushed my limit and helped me reach goals that I thought were unattainable.

Internship: Intern at the Rhode Island State Attorney General's Office; Post-Grad Plans: Account Associate at Working Planet

My classes at Assumption provided me with critical thinking skills while my involvement with extracurricular activities helped me to develop my time management skills. Professor Smriti Rao of the economics department helped me with an independent research project involving historical research and analytical work, which will translate well to my job at Working Planet.

Katelyn Corriveau
Marketing '16
Internship: Boston Market Summer Field Marketing Intern at Coca-Cola; Post-Grad Plans: Operations Team Leader at Amazon

Last summer I was one of ten interns selected from across the country to work with Coca-Cola’s coconut water, ZICO. I gained hands-on experience with event coordination and was able to work with corporate partners like Life is Good. This experience, my classes at Assumption and the faculty and staff all prepared me to accept a full-time offer with Amazon after graduation!
