A Pictorial History Of Bryant University: 1989-2018 An Era of Transformation
Time flies at Bryant. Whether you’re a student, professor, administrator, staff member or trustee, you get caught up in the excitement and, before you know it, years have gone by. In the last 30 years, Bryant has grown dramatically - in the number of students, faculty, and staff; in academic offerings and experiential opportunities; in campus size and facilities; in student life; in athletics and wellness; in diversity and international programs; and in its sense of community. We speak with one voice in saying that Bryant is an extraordinary learning community. And few American universities have experienced such amazing growth during these three decades.
If you have visited the beautiful campus in recent years, you have seen the transformation. It’s evident in the new facilities, and equally apparent in academics, athletics, and student life.
Mark Twain was quoted 20 years ago in the keynote address at Bryant’s 135th Commencement: “Twenty years from now, you will be more disappointed by the things you did not do than the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines! Sail away from the safe harbor! Catch the trade winds in your sails! Explore! Dream! Discover!” During this era, Bryant sailed away from a safe harbor. And that voyage continues.
This book is a tribute to the students, faculty, staff, administrators, trustees, alumni, and families who have supported Bryant these 30 years. We appreciate having this book as another way to take a tour of our beloved Bryant — traveling in time through its recent past …marveling at its current success …and imagining the possibilities of an unlimited future.
