Boston Mayor Thomas Menino encourages college students to get out and explore the city

In a recent video released by the City of Boston, Boston Mayor Thomas M. Menino does his part to welcome new college students by urging them to "break the bubble" and get out and explore Boston.

He lists numerous advantages to living in Boston, including direct access to world-class museums, parks, and internship and job opportunities. He also encourages students to volunteer and get involved with local politics.

There are several ways Simmons students can stay connected with the city to make their time in Boston both safe, and rewarding. You can start by following the Mayor's "Break the Bubble" student initiative on Twitter @brkthebubble, and by visiting the student section on the City of Boston website. To report any issues or problems, you can call the city's 24-hour hotline at 617-635-4500 or download the Citizen's Connect smartphone app.

We love that we're located right in the heart of Boston, and we hope our students do, too! Check out our list of the top six things to do in Boston (while the weather is still nice!), and watch Sarah Galvez '15, Woman on Campus, as she shows you her favorite places in Boston. To learn more about our Boston-area volunteer opportunities, visit the Scott/Ross Center for Community Service website.
