1969

My Bentley Story by Paul Grassia

IT WAS JUNE,1969 WHEN I GRADUATED FROM BENTLEY COLLEGE OF ACCOUNTING AND FINANCE. THAT'S RIGHT WE WERE THE FIRST CLASS TO GRADUATE FROM THE WALTHAM CAMPUS. I'M VERY PROUD OF THAT.


MY BEST FRIEND CARMINE MASTROGIOV ANNI AND I HAD AN IDEA AFTER GRADUATION TO GET TOGETHER EVERY YEAR WITH OUR FRIENDS WE
HUNG AROUND WITH AT BENTLEY. EVERY YEAR SINCE 1969, OUR OLD GANG MEETS FOR DINNER AT THE CHATEAU RESTAURANT IN WALTHAM AND WE CATCH UP WITH NEWS OF OUR LIVES. THE FIRST FEW MEETINGS THERE WERE ABOUT 10 PEOPLE, BUT SOMETIMES WE HAD AS MANY AS 30 SHOW UP. MOST OF THEM ARE IN ACCOUNTING OR FINANCE JOBS, BUT I PURSUED A CAREER IN MUSIC. I AM AN INTERNATIONAL RECORDING ARTIST/SINGER AND AN INTERNATIONAL AUTHOR.

THE FRIENDSHIPS I MADE AT BENTLEY I HAVE KEPT MY WHOLE LIFE.THESE GUYS ARE MY FAMILY AD I'M GRATEFUL FOR THEM IN MY LIFE. BENTLEY IS NOT JUST A UNIVERSITY, IT IS A PERFECT STATE OF GRACE. I ALWAYS FELT FORTUNATE TO CALL IT MY BENTLEY. FROM TWO SMALL BUILDINGS ON BOYLSTON STREET TO A BEAUTIFUL UNIVERSITY CAMPUS IN WALTHAM. BENTLEY IS SO MUCH MORE THAN AN INSTITUTE OF HIGHER LEARNING IT'S A LIFETIME OF FRIENSHIP.
