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