Eastern Alumni

Piro, Justin

Justin Piro Biochemistry ’05 “The majority of my classes at Eastern included a strong lab component. I was doing what scientists do — getting outside of the classroom and working with the latest scientific equipment. Eastern really set the groundwork for me to go to graduate school.”

Gray, Damon

Damon Gray Communication ’16 “Eastern gave me hands-on experience in video editing and live sports broadcasts. With the help of the staff and fellow students, the Eastern TV sports crew was the perfect starting point for a career at ESPN.”

Carroll, Marlana
