Seeing Her Potential
Her mom passed away when she was 11; her father when she was 18.
And yet, meeting Olivia Corriveau '18, her quiet determination shines as brightly as her infectious smile — and she can’t help but rave about her Bentley life. "I’m very close with my brother," she says, "and I tell him all the time how much I love and appreciate what I have here."
From kicking up dirt on the rugby field to learning the latest technology in her Computer Information Systems courses, Corriveau makes the most of the rich environment around her.
"It means a lot to know that there are people out there who care and see my potential, who want to help me out," says Corriveau, recipient of the J. Earl Bradley Scholarship. "I wouldn’t be as successful as I am without this community: my friends, teammates and professors — and especially my scholarship donor and everyone else who gives back to the school."
"Words can’t express my gratitude."
More than 75% of Bentley students receive some kind of financial aid, including support from more than 300 endowed scholarship funds.
U.S. News & World Report ranked Bentley No. 2 among regional universities in New England and the Mid-Atlantic states, up from No. 3 last year, highlighting Bentley’s high-quality faculty and academic programs along with the strong value that students receive from a Bentley education.
