My Bentley Story by Paul Stanish

I'm not even sure where to start this Bentley story. I'm not only fortunate to be a graduate of Bentley, but over the past 12+ years I've worked in the Student Affairs Division at the institution. While reflecting back over those 16+ years, I thought of all the people I'm connected with, all the Bentley friendships I still have, and how humbling it feels to be a small part of this institution's history. I thought my impact on Bentley may end in 1996, yet, little did I know or think I'd have an opportunity to continue making my mark on campus 20 years later. As I think back to my time in the 90's, many memories come to mind. My time as a Resident Assistant, Orientation Leader, leading the Newman and Bowling Clubs, bookstore employee, Tuesday nights at Bickfords, hanging with friends in the Trees and running my own TV game show were all great and meaningful. Time spent in Professor Carhart's , LaFarge's and Tesler's classes prepared me well for the "real" world, and I still reference concepts they taught us today. In recent years, connecting with current students through my work has been a primary focus. Passing on the importance of being a positive, community driven and engaged Bentley citizen is and will continue to be a priority in my daily interactions. I'm proud to be part of such a wonderful place. It's amazing to think Bentley is celebrating 100 years, and I look forward to the next century of educational and fun adventures.
