In mid-April, Chestnut Hill College celebrated the 25th Anniversary of its Biomedical Distinguished Lecture Series by welcoming Michael Ciccotti. M.D., director and chief of sports medicine at Rothman Institute.


A bittersweet moment that occurs each April is the Service Awards & Retirement Celebration, held this year on the 19th. Three faculty members and one staff person retired; and 20 celebrated milestones in terms of years served, including Sister Mary Helen Kashuba, D.M.L., professor of French and Russian, who has been with Chestnut Hill College for 55 years.


Commencement is right around the corner, and with it, a new group of alumni! Welcome to the fold, fellow Griffins. We hope you stay engaged and involved with your CHC.


Welcome to our new Connections section: #GriffinPride. Our students, faculty and staff are always doing great things on campus and in the community and, most of the time, they use social media to share their stories.
