Other colleges and universities asked to participate in the Sky Radio interview were: Duke University, Drexel University and Yale School of Management.

The following is Vice President Dennis' interview – “What makes Suffolk a Best College?”

“What makes Suffolk University a best college is the quality of its academic programs and faculty. This means we give our students excellent teaching and excellent programs coupled with career preparation and strategies for dealing with the world of work after graduation.

"The most important aspect of my job is the retention of students. I tell all accepted candidates for admission that Suffolk is not interested in simply admitting them. Rather, we are more interested in graduating them. There is a very different mindset when you consider students from a perspective of successful alumni. Customer service and paying attention to student satisfaction are of paramount importance at Suffolk.

"Why are international programs such an important part of Suffolk today? We believe that to be truly educated a graduate of Suffolk should be exposed to students from all parts of the world. Our 1,000 international students from 100 countries allow Suffolk to create a truly diverse atmosphere and allow students to graduate as “global citizens of the world.” Our campuses in Madrid, Spain, and Dakar, Senegal, further provide opportunities for our students to interact in a global environment. We believe that this is important now and will continue to be important to graduates as they enter the world of work, which in all probability will have some international component.

"Advice to parents: Relax. There are over 3,600 colleges and universities in the U.S. Each school has something unique to offer. You will find the school that is the best fit for your child. Begin the process early, explore all of your options, and don't rule schools out because of location or cost.

"Suffolk University will send anyone listening to this recording a free booklet on How To Select a College and How to Finance a College Education. Call (617) 573-8440 or write to Suffolk University, VP for Enrollment, 8 Ashburton Place, Boston, MA, 02108.

"Good luck and thank you.”
