News from 2 Pillsbury Street
Fall has arrived at the College of Graduate Studies in Concord! From our fifth floor at 2 Pillsbury Street, we have a wonderful view of autumn at its best.
We have had a very busy fall term. We offered courses in many different programs including Administration, CAGS, Business, Counseling, Education, Historic Preservation, Neurodevelopment, Reading and Writing, and Special Education. Given that our facility is so convenient from both Routes 93 and 89, we find that our location is a popular spot for those pursuing graduate degrees. With our 12 classrooms and seminar rooms, we are able to provide a comfortable learning environment for our students. Our technology now has an added feature; six SmartBoards have been installed in our most used classrooms. This technology has certainly added a new dimension to the instruction offered by our faculty.
The College of Graduate Studies frequently attends conferences throughout the State of New Hampshire, displaying information about our programs. Recently, our presence at the National Education Association (NEA)-New Hampshire convention, held at Merrimack Valley High School, attracted a great deal of interest from the many educators in attendance. Many conversations, many brochures, and many pens kept the day interesting and informative.
We also welcome groups of educators to hold their meetings here. The State Department of Education not only holds meetings here but also training sessions and workshops. Since our classrooms vary in size, it is easy to accommodate both small and large groups. We also frequently have both the N.H. Association of School Principals and the N.H. Association of Special Education Administrators offering their programs with us. This provides a meeting place for educational efforts in the state and also introduces many to our facility and programs. Our office is open from 8 a.m. each day until our last class of the evening Monday through Friday. We also offer Saturday classes as well.
