A Thank You To Doc Wylie

"His devotion and love for Endicott is something that will never be forgotten"

A Thank You To Doc Wylie
Catalog Endicott

Endicott College recently had an enormous lost which not only affected the schools' students but its staff, donators, trustees, and many more. Dr. Richard E. Wylie 's passing is something that everyone in Endicott's community will be mourning for a long time, but everyone knows that "Doc" has left Endicott as an amazing institution that it would have never become without him.

Doc has left an impression on every student who has walked on Endicott's campus in the past 30 plus years. He wasn't the type of college president who sat in his office all day making calls. He was always around campus, walking into classes, eating in the dining hall, at the BBQ's at his house throughout the semester, riding on his golf cart and saying hello to every student he saw. He helped every student he possibly could and every student on Endicott's campus remembers every interaction they had with Doc.

When Doc came to Endicott in 1987, the school was a small, 2-year women's college that was about to be closed. Doc was able to grow the college into the massive, 4-year coed college that also offers masters and doctoral degrees. Doc Wylie has built over 20 buildings since coming to Endicott, including the current construction of the new academic center which should be done in 2019. The school has also purchased land and buildings around the original campus.

Dr. Wylie's family has set up a funeral mass for the public and Endicott staff and students on Thursday, May 17th at St. Mary Star of the Sea Catholic Church in Beverly, MA at 11 am. There will also be an open reception hosted by Doc's family at Beechwood following the mass from 1:30-3 pm.

Doc, all of the Endicott community admires what you have done for our school and how much you cared for each and every student and staff member on our campus. His devotion and love for Endicott is something that will never be forgotten.

The Christmas season is coming to an end, but it's not too late to get some last-minute movies in! Unfortunately, this year didn't look like a typical Christmas. While we can't have any big Christmas parties or family gatherings, we can still celebrate at home! Christmas is the best time for nostalgia, and we could all use some warm and fuzzy feelings as we wrap up a tough year and enter a new one that hasn't been proven any calmer, either.

As a kid who grew up in the 2000s, I can think of some of my favorite staple Christmas movies. If you're looking for recommendations or just a walk down memory lane, check out the list below.

As we enter the new year, you might be looking for a great show to kick-off 2021. Look no further, I have the perfect recommendation. "The Wilds" was released on Amazon Prime last month and has been gaining traction steadily since then. This series of 10 one-hour episodes tells the stories of eight girls who find themselves on a deserted island after their plane crashed while they are on their way to a resort. Unlike other survival shows, there's a bit more to the story than what first meets the eye. This show is unique in characters, storytelling methods, and plot.

If you aren't convinced yet, allow me to provide you with a list of further persuasion.
