Cricket Comes to NEC

Cricket match at NEC

Cricket came to NEC September 21. International master’s students, many of whom are avid cricket fans, competed in a friendly match against some of NEC’s wrestlers, baseball players, and Athletics graduate assistants. The match included about 30 players and at least 100 spectators. NEC’s international students won by one run, although the score was not that important. The match, hopefully the first of many more, offered a fun and unique way for different areas of the College to come together. The match was organized by Rick Mitchell, Program Director of Computer Information Systems, and Dave DeCew, Athletic Director. NEC President Dr. Michele Perkins threw out the first pitch.

International students can choose from four on-campus programs and three low-residency programs. These programs include
