Were you engaged in high school or community activities outside of classes?

I'm having a hard time putting the news about Robin Williams in perspective. I had a tape of Robin William's stand up when I was young. I wore it out. His comedic roles in his early films never seemed to capture his comic energy, but I saw every film, hoping that someone would create a vehicle to bring his greatness to the big screen.

Burlington College Watches Finances as it Grows into its New Campus

Posted by Coralee Holm, Director of Community & Alumni Relations

Jul 7, 2014 12:23:00 PM

In 2011, Burlington College moved from the 16,000 square foot Colodny building up North Avenue to its current location. Within the 90,000 square feet of the former Burlington Catholic Diocese headquarters, the College is bustling with students and community events, and working to meet the vision set forth during the purchase of the new campus and subsequent change in leadership. As is typical of any evolving business, the College’s growth is not without bumps in the road.

Following its recent review of Burlington College, the New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC), which accredits educational institutions in New England, placed the College on probation status for up to two years for failure to meet one of eleven standards. The standard of concern is based on financial resources, and does not relate to the College’s academic strengths. Burlington College remains accredited during the period of probation.
