Fisher College recently held a visual merchandising display contest open to the public that had students, faculty, families and guests flowing in through the doors on April 15th, 2015. Orchestrated by Professor Susan Mullins, the student competitors (who are in Fisher’s fashion merchandising program) were separated into seven groups and given the theme of "Music & Fashion".
Have you ever wondered what it’s like to go to school in a different country, or for that matter, 10 different countries all in the same semester?
Well, you’re in luck! Fisher College offers both a Study Abroad program, that traverses 16 countries across the globe, and a Semester at Sea program, which allows students to live on a cruise ship and travel to numerous countries all within one semester.
Fisher’s own Rebecca Lake, Lisa Morris and Ana Da Cunha have all just finished their respective journeys abroad and have offered to share their experiences with us.
"Do Your Job!" This has been the mantra of the New England Patriots during their epic run to four Super Bowl wins since 2001. We've seen how this work ethic and eye for detail manifests itself on the field, and now a group of Fisher College seniors has seen how this comes to play off the field as well.

From the classroom to the dorm room, there has been much talk among Criminal Justice students and college students in general about the thin blue line now walked by police officers as they patrol urban neighborhoods in the wake of violent unrest in places like Ferguson, Missouri and New York City after two unarmed African-American men were killed during altercations with officers in those cities. The stories dominated the headlines in 2014 and intensified the underlying mistrust between residents of the inner city and those men and women sworn to protect them.
Boston, MA - The Fisher College men’s basketball team put together a phenomenal 2014-15 season, ending the regular season with an astounding 21-7 record, with two games being the team’s longest losing streak (.750 winning percentage). This is only Fisher’s third season with 20 or more wins, and the first season since 2010 where the Falcons received top-25 votes twice. The Falcons were also the No. 1 team in weekly Association of Independent Institutions (AII) voting from December through January.
Designers are incorporating a wide array of colors into their collections this season and you almost need a color wheel to figure out what you are looking at. To make it easier, we’ve decoded the top colors and created an easy to follow pantone.
As anyone who has gone through the college application process is painfully aware, the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is not only the portal through which students can access Uncle Sam’s $150 billion pot of available grants, loans, and work-study funds, many states, schools, and private scholarships require applicants to first submit the FAFSA to determine how much, if any, financial aid they may offer.

Theoretically, yes. But the real-world answer is a bit complicated.
