living at INTO Suffolk


The city is your classroom

Boston is a bustling city that is home to five professional sports teams, the oldest public park in the US, historic sites, international restaurants and over 35 colleges and universities. There is always something to do here. In the spring, catch a Red Sox baseball game or attend an outdoor concert in the summer. During fall, watch the tree leaves turn colors or go ice skating in the winter. As a college town, the city feels like one big community.

An old city with a modern vibe

Boston is a world-class city that is known as a center for education and innovation. Home to over 50,000 international students, you’re never far away from someone else going through similar experiences as you.

The city is home to famous professional sports teams, theaters, live music venues, museums, parks, and historic buildings that shaped the US. The town is one of the nation’s oldest areas and because of its small scale it is easy to explore on foot or by public transit.

Boston is also a big college town. There are over 35 colleges and universities in the area, which means there is always something going on around the city. If you love sports, it’s one of the biggest sports cities in the country. Locals love cheering for their favorite professional teams, including the Red Sox, Patriots, Celtics and the Bruins (baseball, football, basketball, and ice hockey).

Massachusetts is full of opportunity making it a great place to find an internship after you graduate. The city is considered a world leader in entrepreneurial growth and innovation, is home to 10 Fortune 500 companies, and gives you access to industry leaders and companies that will deepen your studies in real-world ways. Since Boston's economy is known to be incorporated with the schools, getting an internship or participating in Optional Practical Training (OPT) after college is easier than in other parts of the country.
