(Published in What's Happening in Tower Square in September)
You may have noticed quite a few more cars in the parking garage as well as additional foot traffic in the retail area this month, as students from both the UMass Center at Springfield and Cambridge College converge on the two Tower Square colleges for their fall studies.
UMass Center at Springfield
This is the 4th year of classes being offered at the UMass Center, which opened on the second floor in September 2014. Since opening, the school’s emphasis has been on academic programs, research and community engagement.
Eighty-eight (88) new nursing students start at the UMass Center on September 5th, enrolled in the Accelerated Bachelor’s degree program now being offered by the UMass Amherst College of Nursing here at Tower Square. This class of students is being hailed for its varying aspects of diversity.
In addition to Nursing, students are also enrolled in other programs from UMass Amherst that include:
- Isenberg’s Part-time MBA program
