Alumni Spotlight is a new feature brought to you through our new networking platform, Connect2Bristol. Our college is more than 50 years old and is proud of its alumni and the lives they lead in our community. 

While some alumni have retired from careers that their Bristol education helped them forge, many others are just now establishing themselves. In this space, you will meet a wide variety of Bristol graduates.

‌At age eighteen, Alan Silvia, Corporal USMC, was a communications operator with top secret clearance. He traveled throughout Southeast Asia carrying classified communications.  Every day on his tour of duty he dreamed of going back to school and becoming the first person in his family to go to college. “I made it through some difficult times, boot camp and infantry training, but I knew I needed to return to school to become successful,” says Silvia. Now a Massachusetts State Representative, Silvia looks back on his journey.
