Behind its modern-day appeal, you’ll find a city with revolutionary roots. Energetic and creative, it's a world destination for intellectuals, artists, and entrepreneurs.

In other words, it's the kind of place that makes history every day.

You’ll be in good company here. Greater Boston is home to over 50 universities. That means endless opportunities to meet amazing students. Students who, like you, come here to create change. To challenge convention. To do something, bigger, smarter, and more interesting.

Something for Everyone

When you're not out changing the world, you'll find plenty of other ways to spend your time. For instance, you could museum hop, hit a Sox game, shop local at the SoWa market, or soak in the sun on the Esplanade. And that's only the beginning. Come visit and see for yourself.
