Dedicated to Student Success
For nearly 120 years, Eastern Nazarene College has prepared students for lives of leadership and service through a rigorous liberal arts education. Today, students drawn from 14 foreign nations and 36 U.S. states are prepared both intellectually and spiritually to lead in the 21st century. Students have the opportunity to engage with faculty and classmates in small classes and labs that emphasize experiential learning. The faculty is dedicated to every student’s success with 95% of graduates employed or are in graduate school upon graduation. Drawing on a deep commitment to scholarship and teaching, the faculty encourages students to challenge themselves both in and out of the classroom through participation in research, internships, and graduate studies. Students have undertaken internships at UMASS Medical School, Boston Medical Center Growth and Development Lab, Boston’s Children Hospital, and Mass General Hospital, to name just a few. Other students have pursued graduate programs at Harvard Medical School, MIT, and Oxford. At Eastern Nazarene College, we also understand the importance of balancing mind, body, and spirit; therefore, students actively participate in service projects, mission trips, theater productions, 21 student clubs and organizations, and 15 NCAA Division III athletic teams.
Guided by Christian Values
Bertha Munro, the first dean of Eastern Nazarene College once said that, “There is no conflict between the best in education and the best in the Christian faith.” Drawn from a variety of faith backgrounds, Eastern Nazarene College supports students in their spiritual development, providing them with opportunities to live their faith. Student-led summer ministry teams travel to camps and churches on the east coast, a long-standing tradition and valuable experiential learning for those interested. Other students participate in mission trips called FUSION. The FUSION program is designed to give students an opportunity to connect with the activity of God in contexts which cause them to cross a boundary of difference. In 2019, a San Diego-Tijuana Fusion team partnered with an organization called Global Immerse to experience the immigrant’s journey, delving into the human and social issues affecting immigrant families in the U.S. Another FUSION team traveled to Puerto Rico where they helped local leaders rebuild communities devastated in the aftermath of Hurricane Maria. In 2018 and 2019, teams sent to Zambia, led by psychology professor Dr. Catherine Bell and soccer coach Mark Bell, assisted a Christian relief agency provide food, bed nets, school visits, and home visits to those affected with HIV/AIDS.
