Francis J. Carey, Jr. Lecture

The Francis J. Carey, Jr. Lecture Series was established in 2019 to connect Gilman boys and our community with deans of admissions from leading colleges and universities through their presentations on admissions, leadership, and inspiring accomplishment.

On November 3, 2022, we warmly welcomed our latest lecturer, Lee Coffin, Vice Provost for Enrollment and Dean of Admissions and Financial Aid at Dartmouth College, who presented on the topic "Keep Calm and Carry On as You Apply to College," which focused on finding balance and maintaining well-being throughout the college application process.
