Just days before President Kennedy was gunned down, he sent Bryant College which wasn't a University back then a telegram, honoring the school's founding.

In the telegram, the President praises Bryant for graduating "mature and intelligent" students who he says are "well prepared to serve" their nation.

He also congratulated the school on its first 100 years.
