Special Message

Daniel Webster College (DWC) is constantly growing and changing, yet it does so while maintaining its classic New England character. The College features the Eaton-Richmond Center, its newest academic building, and the Harvey Woods baseball field, which opened in 2003. It also maintains seven state-of-the-art computer labs, designed to support the College's reputation as a regional leader in computer information systems and information technology education.

During the 2003 academic year the College added new certificate programs in .NET, Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer (MCSE), and Microsoft Certified Systems Administrator (MCSA). Undergraduate degree programs in social science and marketing were also added. In addition, the College had a tremendous kick-off with its new MBA program.

The College continues to pay significant attention to its online students. The distance education program grew more than 200 percent in 2003, added additional library services, and implemented the Student Online Access to Records (SOAR) program, giving its distance education (DE) students full access to their grades, schedules, and student account records online. The College's goal is to offer quality classes that go wherever its students go.

The faculty and staff members of DWC are dedicated to supporting the educational needs of students regionally, nationally, and internationally with the highest quality services and programs available anywhere. That effort requires constant change. Yet, for all this, DWC is still a classic New England college.
