The Journey is a four-year comprehensive leadership experience built on the cornerstones of Involvement, Service, Career Exploration and Leadership. The program is designed to develop your leadership skills throughout your collegiate career at Suffolk University.

Students are required to experience all aspects of the cornerstones as they begin the “Journey” in their first year. In the years that follow, they are encouraged to focus on the activities in which they are more passionate. At the end of the academic year, The Journey Recognition Dinner highlights the year’s leadership programs, honors the students who participated in The Journey and recognizes the offices that contributed to the program.

Each cornerstone has a variety of experiences:

Leadership Training:

SGA Fall Retreat, Emerging Leaders Program, Leadership Through Sailing Program


Student Organization Member, Performing Arts Production Cast/Crew, Teaching Assistant, Resident Assitant

Career Exploration:

Independent Study, Career Services Event/Workshop, Internship


Service Project Leaders, Community Service, Alternative Spring Break
