Boston heats up in the summer. From outdoor concerts to street festivals to simply relaxing in a nearby park, there’s always something to do steps from your front door.

Things don’t end too well for Romeo and Juliet, but everyone else wins at this outdoor tradition. Commonwealth Shakespeare Company stages a free production on Boston Common every year. Forsooth! (Photos: Michael J. Clarke)

You can catch a Broadway musical, comedy show, ballet, or play every single night in Boston. Whether performing onstage at our Modern Theatre or cheering from balcony seats in the Theater District, our students find their scene.

A Riverside Stroll on the Charles

The Esplanade

A leisurely stroll along the Esplanade and Charles River in Boston

Sometimes a Ram’s gotta kayak, or wind-surf, or relax in an Adirondack chair with a view. The Esplanade’s perfect for doing all three or just strolling (or jogging) through the greenery. (Photos: Alexey Korolev ’18)

From the Common right outside our dorms to the Greenway, to the Esplanade and beyond, Boston boasts 2,300 acres of parks and green spaces. Our students have their pick of urban oases.

Suffolk students walk by it every day, but what is Park Street Church’s steeple like inside? We went up to take photos of our buildings and the Boston skyline, and couldn’t help snapping the atmospheric interior too. Even the graffiti’s historic. (Photos: Michael J. Clarke)

No city has preserved its history quite like Boston has. While the Freedom Trail unwinds just outside our front door, our students learn from the past as they prepare to make history of their own.

Boston comes to life in the spring: Swan boats glide on the Public Garden’s lake, Fenway Park echoes with the crack of bats, and city parks turn brilliantly green. It’s the perfect setting for finishing the academic year strong.
