Professor Mike Musante teaches a class

 “Something that Springfield not only taught me but enhanced and helped me grow as an individual is communication. It's a very welcoming place ... people are going to say hello and ask you how you've been and genuinely care about you. Being a small and close-knit campus, it's hard to describe to people who haven't been on campus to experience the feeling. The skill of communication mixed with the tradition and philosophy of spirit, mind, and body, has truly put me, and I'm sure many other Springfield business majors, in places of great opportunity.” - Shaun Ermi ’17
