Rathbun, Molly

Molly Rathbun Four-time All-American ’12 “I strongly believe being a student athlete shaped me into the best version of myself, and has made me realize my passion for helping others to do the same.”

Nicholas Khan

Nicholas Khan Visual Arts ’17 “The art faculty were always willing to go that extra mile, and the additional studio space in the new Fine Arts Instructional Center enabled me to work on my art outside of class. I had a great experience at Eastern that I’ll never forget.”

Abigail Caselli

Abigail Caselli Psychology ’17 “Being involved in undergraduate research was the best decision I made at Eastern; I presented at research conferences, which helped me to be accepted into graduate school.”

Brown, Justin

Dr. Justin Brown ’09 “Eastern provides an environment that is intellectually engaging, culturally diverse and socially enriching. It is my professional opinion that the KPE faculty are among the best educators in the country.”

Ngibuini, David

David Ngibuini Mathematics ’14 “All of life’s problems can’t be solved with a few lines of code. Having a liberal arts background helps me to draw from different branches of knowledge so that I can reach a creative solution, rather than facing the world purely as a computer scientist.”
