Eastern Alumni

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.”

Anthony Lucia

Anthony Lucia Biology ’13 “During my time at Eastern, I was able to supplement my degree with a variety of independent research, travel and important life experiences that have been invaluable in both my professional and personal life.”

Justin Piro

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.”

Sinque Tavares

Sinque Tavares Theatre ’17 “My eyes have been opened to other dance forms and how to choreograph in different perspectives; I like to incorporate different genres into the same dance — hip hop, jazz, modern, tap — I like to do everything.”

Elizabeth DelBuono

Elizabeth DelBuono Biology ’17 “I was surrounded by some of the most brilliant individuals in the world, and was immersed in the race to find an answer, a gene, a treatment, a cure.”
