Berkeley Today

Marlene “Gizzi” Resciniti and her son, Michael, stand in front of the 1980s panel of the Berkeley College Legacy Timeline Exhibit. Welcome to Berkeley Today, a collection of stories, interviews, videos, slideshows, and other media that provides an inside look at Berkeley College and its students, alumni, faculty, and staff.

Delve into the stories of students such as Marjorie Brown, who parlayed the confidence she gained at Berkeley College into an invitation to volunteer in Washington, D.C. during the Presidential Inauguration. She worked alongside Chelsea Clinton and other VIPs. However, she passed on attending the Inaugural Ball because she had a final the next day.

Alumna Edwina Kulego, an international student from Sweden, shared how she was able to accomplish the three goals she set for herself: Graduate with honors in three years; pursue a career in international business and fashion while also utilizing her language skills; and secure company sponsorship which would allow her to work full-time in the United States.

This page also provides an in-depth look at some of the opportunities provided through programs offered at Berkeley College. Students in the Fashion Marketing and Management program, for example, were invited to run a fashion show at the Last Call Studio by Neiman Marcus store in Paramus, NJ after the store manager happened upon the Fashion Club publication Berkeley Fashion. The event was quite a success. As a result, the students were invited back to manage an expanded show the following spring.

Founded in 1931, Berkeley College has an illustrious history and promising future. Read all about it – today.
