|School mission and unique qualities (as provided by the school):|
For 146 years, alumni of Dean have pointed to their Dean experience as the turning point in their lives. Dean offers what you expect to find at a college - a safe residential campus, athletic programs, clubs & activities, wireless network, scholarships and financial aid, but with an atmosphere that is a little more patient, and a bit more nurturing.
A unique caring college that bridges the leap between high school and university by offering two or four year degrees from a New England campus, guided by an unusually passionate faculty. Proof that sometimes the smartest distance between two points isn't a straight line.
