The city is your classroom
Boston is a bustling city that is home to five professional sports teams, the oldest public park in the US, historic sites, international restaurants and over 35 colleges and universities. There is always something to do here. In the spring, catch a Red Sox baseball game or attend an outdoor concert in the summer. During fall, watch the leaves turn colors in the parks or go ice skating in the winter. As a college town, the city feels like one big community of like-minded individuals. Everyone you meet has a story to tell, just like you!

An old city with a modern vibe
Boston is a world-class city that is known as a center for education and scholarship. After New York and Los Angeles, the city ranks third among U.S. metro areas for its number of international students. This means you’re never far away from someone else going through similar experiences as you.
The city is home to 5 professional sports teams, 12 theaters, 11 live music venues, 10 museums, 20 coffee shops, parks, urban environments and historic walking tours. The town is one of the nation’s oldest areas and because of its small scale it is easy to explore on foot or by public transit.
Boston is also a big college town. There are over 50 colleges and universities in the area, which means there is always something going on around the city. If you love sports, it’s one of the biggest sports cities in the country. Locals love rooting for their favorite professional teams which include the Red Sox, Patriots, Celtics and the Bruins.
Massachusetts is full of opportunity making it a great place to find an internship after you graduate. The city is considered a world leader in innovation and has the world’s largest concentration of Nobel laureates–It also receives the most venture capital funding in the country. Since Boston's economy is known to be incorporated with the schools, getting an internship or participating in Optional Practical Training (OPT) after college is easier than in other parts of the country.Living in Boston
