When Bay Path opened its doors to students in downtown Springfield in 1897, it had a very clear goal: to provide a practical, affordable, and career-oriented education to meet the needs of companies, organizations, and communities. From the beginning, Bay Path prided itself on being entrepreneurial, constantly pushing the boundaries of the academic experience to fit the student. To start them on the road of success. We still do.
Today, that spirit and philosophy is more important than ever in higher education. At Bay Path, it's not just the number and breadth of undergraduate and graduate programs that defines us—and we have many—but it is our ability to connect the classroom to learning to leadership to experience to career that is at the core of what we do best. We know the work that needs to be done.
At Commencement , after receiving their diplomas graduates pass under a banner with the University's motto, Carpe Diem. Seize the Day. Our students know better: they seize this day…they seize this moment. We have done our job.
It starts with your relationship with your Bay Path professor—a highly personal, highly focused partnership where we blend the classroom (picture online, or even on the lawn of Bay Path on a sunny day) with experiences that take you out of your comfort zone.
Be prepared to take part. Your education begins here.
