Suffolk Serves (June 5th, 12th & 19th)
Students will first learn about the complex issues of hunger and homelessness in Boston, and then travel in a group to a local food pantry to help serve a meal to those in need. Due to the nature of this community service opportunity, the group is limited. This is a great way to give back to your new community, and connect in a meaningful way to other new students. Be sure to wear comfortable clothing and closed-toe sneakers or shoes.
Boston Duck Tour (June 5th)
You’ve never toured Boston in any way that comes close to Boston Duck Tours. The fun begins as soon as you board your “duck”—a renovated World War II amphibious landing vehicle. You’ll cruise by all the places that make Boston the birthplace of freedom and a city of firsts, from the golden-domed State House to Bunker Hill; and from the Boston Common to Copley Square.
Shear Madness (June 9th & 16th)
Named “best comedy of the year” by the Boston Globe for seven straight years, this play is a hilarious whodunit that gives the audience the chance to play detective. Set in a hair salon, Shear Madness is the longest running off-Broadway play in American theatre history.
Blue Man Group (June 19th)
The Blue Man Group theatrical show and concert is wildly popular in Boston. It combines music, comedy, and multimedia theatrics to produce a totally unique form of entertainment and a party atmosphere.
Improv Asylum (June 12th)
