MFA Winter Residency Heads to Ireland
Twelve students in the University’s MFA in Creative Writing program
completed a six-day winter residency in Dublin last January that
was “life-changing,” according to student Ryan Crowell ’13/G’ 16.
The residency featured courses led by noted Irish writers Michael
O’Loughlin, Mia Gallagher, and Sean O’Reilly at the Irish Writers
Centre, adjacent to the Dublin Writers Museum.

Trustees Share Personal Insights with
Students at Career Panel
The Trustees of Western New England University are integral to
the success of the institution. In March, several members brought
their professional insights directly to students in the first ever
Board of Trustees Career Panel. Participating trustee panelists
included Carmel A. Caramagna, Esq. L’84, Alexander M. Corl ’84,
Stan Kowalski III ’92, and Michael A. Serafino ’77, who were
supported by several trustees in attendance.
The event offered an opportunity for the trustees to share with
students their experiences in the evolving job market and discuss
decisions they had to make as they progressed in their careers.
Gets Extreme Makeover
Western New England University recently
unveiled a brand new website with dynamic
changes to its look, feel, and functionality.
The design’s primary focus is to provide
prospective students and their families with
the information they need throughout the
college search process. Prospective
students are now able to choose one or
more areas of academic interest, and be
presented with a list of programs that align
with that focus.
We invite and encourage everyone to visit
and explore the site to experience the full
spectrum of services now available, including
the brand new Alumni website.
