What is new with New Dimensions?

This has been the big question that many people have asked throughout the past several months. The Albertus Magnus Campus is adapting the name New Dimensions for its Associates, Bachelors and Masters cohorts with you in mind!

Throughout the past couple months we have been gearing up for our September classes which mark great changes. After review we have been able to open our doors to accept the highest amount of transfer credits to date. As partners with the surrounding Community Colleges, we want our students to know that their experience counts, and that here at Albertus, we welcome and accept your previous hard work.

A second change will be the new development and structure of our classes. Come September our classes will move from having a “learning team” aspect to having a “blended” online portion. This modification is to help students interact with their entire class, while honing vital computer skills that will be needed once entering the work-world.

Lastly, our final implementation is our new open enrollment that circulates year round. Understanding that our students are busy, and that everyone has a unique schedule, we modified our Cohorts to where students can “jump in” at any given time. This structure allows students to join a cohort when they feel they are ready, and allows them to pick up classes at the end of the given year.

All of these changes take effect come September, and have been done to make continuing your education that much more feasible. Our September Open Houses are on Tuesday, September 9th at our East Hartford Campus and Thursday, September 11th at our New Haven Campus. Registration for these events are up online, and we look forward to see you there!

 

Defining Patriotism

IMG_0893Patriotism defined by the Webster Dictionary is, ‘love that people feel for their country’. As we celebrate Independence Day, we remember the men and women who serve our country and protect our freedom. Our veterans and their families deserve our appreciation for their service and our support as they transition from active military duty to their civilian lives. As an institution of higher education, Albertus is proud to provide academic rigor and a supportive environment for our veterans and their families to achieve academic success.

Albertus Magnus College strives to provide the best educational tools and faculty for all of our students. Albertus participates in the Yellow Ribbon program and has financial aid and admission staff who specialize in veteran’s benefits. For the second year in a row, Albertus Magnus College has been recognized as a 2014/15 Military Friendly School. Our student veterans play an active role in our learning community.

We invite you to take a moment to say THANK YOU to all veterans by posting a message on our student veteran Facebook page or Pinterest board.
