On Saturday, March 31, 2012, Joe Wray, Tom Messinger and Greg Rosnick headed east to Beantown for a day of college visits. Joe Wray, a veteran coach here at Project Coach, was recently accepted to a host of schools in the region, and before he decided on where he would be studying next year, it was important to get out and see the schools one last time.
The morning started with a tour of the beautiful Mount Ida College campus in Newton, Mass. Because the weather was a bit dreary, the campus was a little quiet as many students sought refuge in their dorms and the nearby academic buildings. As we strolled around campus, we almost had the place to ourselves. Joe was very impressed with the physical beauty of the campus and if he goes there, he may be interested in studying a program within Mount Ida’s School of Business.
After a nice tour of campus, Joe, Greg, and Tom headed downtown to grab a bite to eat and stroll around the Boston Common. By this point, the wind had really picked up and the lingering winter cold forced the three to head out of the city center a bit earlier than expected. So after a short lunch break, they made their way to Newbury College, which is just minutes outside of downtown Boston in the picturesque suburb of Brookline, Mass.
Because of our timing, the stay at Newbury was much shorter. The three Project Coach representatives walked around and talked to a few students and staff. However, because there were no tours at this time of day, their stay at the school was quite limited.
Overall, it was a very positive day for Joe, who will be forced to make a very important decision sometime in the next few weeks.
Everyone at Project Coach is proud of Joe’s transformation over the past few years and we look forward to supporting him as he makes these exciting decisions for his future.
