If you’re looking for a different avenue to explore, you’ll find it somewhere in the city. That’s what makes Suffolk different from a traditional campus. If you’re at a more isolated institution, you’re kind of confined to that space. There’s no other place you can really go to find an inspiration that may push you toward the next project or the next big thing.
I think just being in the city and being able to branch out is what makes Suffolk special. We have plenty of schools around here. We have plenty of museums, plenty of shows, plenty of venues. It’s kind of hard not to find what you’re looking for. If you find it, you can bring it back to Suffolk and introduce more people to it.
As an orientation leader, I tell students that you don’t have to be limited to just a specific major. You can do that and other things, too. If you want to learn something, you have resources—utilize them. They’re all here in the city. It’s there. Search for it. Find it.
