Words from some of our graduates:

Thank you for all of the support I received; I had a wonderful time. Pine Manor has provided me with educational experiences that I wouldn’t have experienced anywhere else.” – Cassandra Walker

I had the best experiences here; my advice to current and future students is to get involved in as many aspects of the college as they can because it is from doing this that you learn even more. Also, don’t make assumptions about people – try to get to know them first. Mostly, thank you to the Psychology Department for their help.” – MayRoyce Jarrett

I had a wonderful experience, and I am fortunate to have met everyone here, thank you.” – Hannah Kaplan

Words to our graduates:

Everyone would agree that college is a long and challenging journey but you didn’t quit, you persevered and did it. Congratulations! It is your day. You’re off to great places, to a future without boundaries! May you make meaningful connections with other people and as President Obama said “Don’t just get involved, fight for your seat at the table…better yet, fight for a seat at the head of the table.”
Pine Manor is proud of you!
