Save the Date for the 2017 Nighthawk Golf Tournament

Monday, October 2, 2017 – TPC Boston
Newbury College will be hosting the Annual Nighthawk Golf Tournament on October 2, 2017. In keeping with the Newbury tradition of having its tournaments at premier private golf clubs, this year’s tournament will be held at the prestigious TPC Boston.

Registration will begin at 11:30 am, with tee-off set for 1:00 pm. A box lunch will be provided and a cocktail reception will follow the tournament. To continue with Newbury’s tradition, contest holes, a 50/50 raffle, and a silent auction will be held.

Why do you love Newbury? 
I got a very well rounded education, there are numerous resources to utilize and I made many fond memories while I attended.

What does being a Newbury College Graduate mean to you?
The Newbury college experience helped me transition smoothly from life at home to life as an adult. Because I have always been shy, the small, warm environment helped me to make friends and adapt quicker. Instead of drowning in huge classrooms where the professor doesn’t even know your name, the smaller classes cultivate a friendlier, more supportive environment. The small campus and close-knit community helped make the experience less intimidating and more memorable. 
As an alumna, I want to support that environment, but also help the college grow. It’s important to keep up with the times and integrate technology into the learning experience. It’s also important to me that I provide support to those who need guidance into the next stage of life. Many students aren’t sure what they want to do, where they want to go, and they aren’t sure how to figure that out. I want to be a resource so that those students who are questioning their future know that they aren’t alone and that there are many opportunities out there. I went to school for hospitality, but I transferred my skills into real estate. Getting a college degree doesn’t restrict you into one field. If you get creative, you can use a college degree in many different ways and in different fields. I am one example of that. 

Why do you donate to the Annual Fund?
I always try to give back to the places that serve the community and have a special place in my heart. I know that when I give back to Newbury, it not only serves the current and future students, but it also helps Newbury to grow. Everyone knows that a college education is important, but also expensive; it’s important to provide value to those who seek this experience and growth.
