To Our Classmate and Friend
On very rare occasions are we fortunate enough to
befriend someone like Carline; brave, compassionate,
mindful, and proud. From her we take lessons in perse-
vering through life's hardships and, more importantly,
cherishing all that is good.
We will always hold dear the time she spent with us and
are honored to dedicate this publication to Carline St.
Hubert, Freshman Class of 1995.
Your friend is your needs answered.
She is your field which you sow with love and
reap with thanksgiving.
For you come to her with your hunger, and
you seek her for peace.
When you part from yourfiiend, you grieve not;
For that which you love most in her may be
clearer in her absence, as the mountain to the
climber is clearer from the plain.
And let there be no purpose in friendship save
the deepening of the spirit.
And let your best be for your friend.
If she must know the ebb of your tide, let her
know its flood also.
For what is your friend that you should seek
her with hours to kill?
Seek her always with hours to live.
For it is hers to fill your need, but not your
And in the sweetness of friendship let there be
laughter, and sharing of pleasures.
For in the dew of little things the heart finds its
morning and is refreshed.
Gibran, The Prophet, -j^,,

Student Government Center
Saturday, February 17, 1999
at Eleven o'clock
The former residence of the Cogliano family is now the new home of
the Student Government Center (SGA) at Curry College. The
colonial style home was built in the 1920's at the junction ofRts. 138
and 128 in Milton, MA. The house remained at this location until 1956
when the house became an obstacle in the Rt. 128 construction project. The
Cogliano family decided to search for a new location for their existing home,
rather than -purchase a new property. Their search proved successful and
they moved their house just down Rt. 128 (then a dirt road), to Blue View
Nursery at the junction of Rts. 128 and 95. The house remained at this
location where Mr. and Mrs. Cogliano raised four boys (Gregory, James,
Matthew and Frank) and one girl (Elaine). In 1997, the Cogliano family
decided to sell the land, but reatin their home. Shortly after the sale of the
property, the family began the process of offering their house to a new owner,
provided the house was moved to a new location. Curry learned of the offer
and gladly accepted the house as a perfect fit with the charm and homey
character of the campus. On May 31, 1998, at approximately 2:00 a.m., the
seven room, two bath, colonial was moved to Curry College. Shortly after
the move a foundation was constructed behind the Office of Student Affairs
that connnected it to the existing structure. The finished project created
additional office space, a receiption area and a larger space for the Student
Government Association. The donation of the Cogliano family home to
Curry College was a wondeful gift and has proven to e an appreciated asset
to the college.
