 from jet engines and wind turbines.”

 Setting high expectations “We emphasize the
 professional aspects of engineering. We’re grounded
 in the principles of engineering, but in parallel we ask
 students to convert that theoretical knowledge into
 practical aspects. And we focus heavily on presentation
 and communication skills. By the time they graduate,
 students are ready to go to a company and assume
 positions of responsibility and leadership very quickly.”

 Finding pleasant surprises “When I came here
 I was impressed with the quality of the graduates.
 In most places, the emphasis is on graduate education,
 but here the emphasis is on undergraduates and it shows.”

“Our students are always designing, building,
and testing engineering systems. We go beyond
the textbooks and ask the students to put theory
into practice, which is what they’ll do in the real
world.” Dr. Bart Lipkens

                                  How she raised her expectations “There are

                                  to Western New England College. However, one main
                                  source of support was my Peer Advisor (PA). My PA,
                                  Sammy, is someone I can always lean on, just a 2 a.m.
                                  text away, and someone who I look up to and trust.
                                  It really made my college experience worthwhile. I felt
                                  there was always someone to support me along my
                                  journey through my first year.”

First Year Program
“Peer Advising has given me the opportunity to become a better listener,
a more effective communicator, and a stronger leader. I have taken on more
leadership roles and responsibilities campus-wide because Peer Advising has
given me fundamental skills, such as time management, and the confidence
to conquer a challenge.” Peer Advisor Samantha Moniz
     Justin Walz
     Major Sport Management, Minor: Mathematics
     Hometown Groton, CT
     Activities Captain of the varsity football team (junior/
     senior years) and starting quarterback, Tri-captain
     of the baseball team and starting shortstop. Volunteer
     for Barclay’s Tournament of the PGA Tour, Town of
     Groton Basketball Association, Habitat for Humanity,
     Springfield Boys and Girls Club, the Scantic Valley
     YMCA, and the Springfield Park Restoration Project.
     How he raised his expectations Justin is the
     epitome of the Western New England College “scholar-
     athlete,” earning a 3.75 GPA in his major and a perfect
     4.0 in his mathematics courses. He has been on the
     Dean’s List since 2006, is a member of Alpha Lambda
     Delta, Beta Gamma Sigma, and Chi Alpha Sigma
     National College Athlete honor societies. He is the
     College’s 2010 Male Scholar-athlete.

     What surprised him “It is an absolute honor to
     be recognized by my teammates and coaches as being
     qualified to captain both teams, but it still comes as
     a pretty big shock looking back on it now. The leader-
     ship experiences changed me for the better because
     captains serve as a link between the coaching staff
     and the players. You experience multiple high
     pressure situations out there, so the lessons I learned
     in the business classroom helped prepare me
     to be a successful leader and accomplish our goal
     of winning the game.”
