Dylan Healy ’17

Bachelor of Arts, Summa cum laude
Psychology


The John G. Lee Medal is awarded annually to a graduating senior from Greater Hartford who has excelled academically while demonstrating a deep commitment to community. The psychology major achieved academic excellence by earning a cumulative 3.95 GPA. During his first semester, Dylan made a positive impression on academic advisor Jessica Nicklin, associate dean of student academic services and the Belle K. Ribicoff endowed professor in the College of Arts and Sciences. Nicklin invited Dylan to join her research team during his second semester.

Dylan is a member of the Alpha Chi, Psi Chi, Sigma Alpha Pi, and Alpha Lambda Delta honor societies, and he completed several research projects that earned authorship at Eastern Psychological Association conferences in Philadelphia, New York, and Boston.

He is assistant program director for the University’s Orientation program for incoming students, director of the University’s Accessible Transportation Program through the Center for Community Service, a teaching assistant for the First-Year Seminar program, and a tutor in the Student Success Center. As a musician and member of an on-campus a cappella group, Dylan’s passion for music led him to also earn a minor in performing arts management and serve as music director of student-run radio station WSAM.
