Felicia Pinckney, 2006, Psychology

My name is Felicia Pinckney. I'm a veteran who graduated from UMass Boston in 2006 with a degree in psychology. UMass Boston was #MyFirstChoice because. . .

 

  • of its vibrant, dynamic community
  • it laid the foundation for my career
  • the professors left a lasting impression, giving me a sense of empowerment that I could literally change the world

Why Is UMass Boston #MyFirstChoice For You?

Maybe it happened when you first visited campus, or the day you opened that acceptance letter. Or maybe UMass Boston didn’t become #myfirstchoice until later—when you took a class with that professor who changed your life, did research in our state-of-the-art facilities, or made lifelong friends on our beautiful harbor side campus. But we all had a moment where we said, "Yes, UMass Boston is the place for me. This is my first choice."
