As you might have noticed, this is the time of celebrations, certificates and receptions across campus. It is the most exciting time of year, in that we can stop and recognize so many outstanding student accomplishments. This spring, we are especially proud – CM PROUD – to share with you that three College of Management students won three very high honors and awards.
Sam Chandler will be the 37th recipient of the John F. Kennedy Award for Academic Excellence—the highest honor given to one graduating UMass Boston undergraduate students. Sam will address his fellow graduates at this year’s commencement ceremony (so cheer loudly!).
Alyssa Trinidad was recognized as one of the top 29 students across the state who are studying at a public higher education institution with UMass Boston’s 29 Who Shine Award, given by the Massachusetts Department of Higher Education.
Christopher MacRae was selected to receive the Michael Ventresca ’69 Distinguished Student Leadership Award by the Undergraduate Student Government and the Alumni Association.
These three awards are special in that any student, in any major or college, has the opportunity to be the recipient, through hard work and dedication to the principles that each award represents. While we have always known we have outstanding students in the College of Management, we are proud that others recognize this as well. So with these awards, and the accomplishments – large and small – of all of our students, we are: CM PROUD.
Please join us in congratulating these three students. Click the image below, or each student name above, for more information.

The events that occurred in Boston on Marathon Monday weigh heavy on our hearts. Our sympathy goes to those who lost their lives and incurred injuries, as well as their loved ones. And we have immense gratitude for all that the first responders and public safety officials of the city have done in the face of great turmoil and danger.
Events like these can impact each of us in unique ways, regardless of proximity to the event. We recognize that our students come from a wide range of backgrounds that, when combined with a tragedy like this, can result in a variety of reactions. We would like to remind you that there are staff and services available to help you process this through the Counseling Center on campus.
If you live or work in the Copley area and are facing any logistical or practical obstacles; or interference with your courses, please let us know. Our advising staff can help you access specific resources and help you navigate any current hurdles. We will be available to talk with any student impacted by the events of Monday afternoon during our business hours, once the campus re-opens. If you need to see an advisor in our office about this outside of our regular walk-in hours, please mention this blog post at the front desk in our office (M-5-610) so that someone can talk with you.
You are all in our thoughts.
The Undergraduate Program Office Advising Staff,
Amy, Mara, Becca and Dave

Have you said or thought that this week? If so, you’re probably not alone. Every registration period one section or one course seems to fill up much faster than others. When that happens, there are a few things that we do to help students. First, when all the seats in the entire course are full, we ALWAYS encourage students to add to the waitlist. This helps us get a true sense of how many students want to take the course and it gives us a case for trying to add another section or increasing the enrollment limit in the current section.
Naturally, there are many logistical elements that go into this process that impact our ultimate success in being able to offer more seats of a certain course. First, we need a place to teach it – so we consult with the appropriate people to find a room that will work for the class. If we decide to just increase the size of the current section, we need to be sure the room assigned can handle it. We also need someone to teach and additional section of the course if we go that route – so we look through the ranks of full time instructors, adjuncts and others to find a qualified person. Then, we go through the process of getting the course posted on Wiser and thus available for student enrollment. This can whole process can be quite lengthy. When we’ve been able to confirm additional seats, we then send an email (through Wiser, to your UMB account) to all enrolled and waitlisted students to notify them of the new seats. When a new section is made available, anyone can swap into or add the new section. When additional seats are added to the existing section, students are moved off the waitlist in order. There is no really way to know how long all of this will take, so we appreciate patience with the process.
Unfortunately, despite our best efforts, there are times when we cannot offer additional seats in a given term for a variety of reasons. When this happens, we look to add another section for the following term. You should also note that we only consider adding extra seats when an entire course is full – so if your first choice for MGT 330 is full, for example, but there are seats in other sections of the course, you should try to take one of those instead. We encourage students who are having scheduling difficulty to see an advisor as we can talk with individual students about specific options for staying on track for graduation and completing certain requirements.
