On May 15th, New Century College (NCC) welcomed the 193 members of our class of 2014 into NCC Hall of Fame. NCC’s convocation ceremony was an opportunity to celebrate both this year’s graduating class as well as the amazing achievements of NCC alumni who had walked across the very same stage over a decade earlier.
“When I entered Cornerstones Freshman year, I embraced the opportunity to learn outside the classroom,” says Ayrielle LeGrande, (BAIN ’13). “I wanted to find a Bachelor’s Degree program that allowed me to expand learning beyond the collegiate environment. As an Integrative Studies major, I concentrated in Legal Studies and was given the flexibility to pursue every one of my passions.
Michelle Bennett Fremen (BAIN ’15) considers herself a non-traditional student. A mother of two and wife to a First Class Petty Officer in the U.S. Navy, she came to NCC in 2013 after serving in the United States Navy as a MH-60S helicopter mechanic.
New Century College faculty members Al Fuertes, Michael Gilmore, and Duhita Mahatmya were awarded the Mentoring Excellence Award from Mason’s Office of Student Scholarship, Creative Activities, & Research (OSCAR).
