By just about every conceivable measure, our school is successful, said President Staropoli. The key, of course, is in getting students to attend classes. When measuring the factors that support his assessment, we include: accreditation scores, attendance, job placement, graduation rates, retention, grades and the recruitment of quality faculty. People have got to do what they say in order for us to continue our success, said Staropoli.

Dean Travers holds it together.Dean Sheron Travers of Brightwood College in Towson is a master at triage. Triage is when confronted with multiple options, a person is able to prioritize and organize and solve problems in order from most important to least. This means that she is an excellent person for students to turn to when they are in trouble. I can work with students who tell me what is going on says Dean Travers and problems can be solved if there is just enough time. Students are encouraged to stay in touch with their faculty and Dean while attending Brightwood College of Towson.

No one more qualified in a crisis.
I tell you what, said Campus Administrator Peter Brooks, there isnt anyone I would rather be around in a crisis more than Dean Sheron Travers. He continued I have seen her in many impossible situations and she always steps up her game and improves everyone around her so students can make it through.

Students Flocking to Johns Hopkins!
The College is going to host a Christmas party featuring Santa Claus and lots of activities for kids on Saturday, December 3rd 2016. We wanted an opportunity to have another open house and celebrate with our students and families said Campus President Jeremiah Staropoli. The last event, the Fall Festival organized by Mrs. Downs was a huge success as over 100 people enjoyed food, fun and fellowship. Based on that event this one promises to be just as awesome.
Major Employer sees Value in Brightwood Graduates.
He is checking his list and checking it twice.
Party Dec. 3rd.
The College lost an excellent Career Services Director when Stacy Polk went on maternity leave. During the interim, Career Services will be handled by Mr. Marshall Ott who is on loan to our campus from Brightwood Beltsville. Stacy is doing an outstanding job and I intend to keep the momentum she built going until she returns in January said Ott.
Baltimores second largest employer, the Johns Hopkins University Medical System is increasing the rate by which they hire Brightwood College graduates. Usually it just takes one bad placement for an employer to reject all future applicants from that institution, said Campus President Jeremiah Staropoli, but with Johns Hopkins the opposite is true, our students are doing very good work after they graduate and so employers like Hopkins are pleased with the quality of our graduates.
Making more money is always good.

The fact that you can come here 2 or 3 days a week and get your diploma in as little as 2 months is going to have a big impact on the lives of many young people who want to get ahead in life and earn more money he continued.
College is hard. There is not only learning something new, but balancing school, family and work is not easy. With that in mind the administration at Brightwood College of Towson boiled down the three keys to success for students. 1. Show up2. Do the work3. Work together (cooperate)
