City Guide
Study in Boston

Boston is at the corner of history and modernity, inextricably linked to America’s dawn. Here, you’ll find Plymouth Rock, where the Pilgrims first landed, and patriot Paul Revere’s house. But you’ll also discover a bustling city, rich in business opportunities, including those in the booming software industry. 

Fondly referred to as Beantown, Boston is home to the U.S.’ first subway system, lighthouse, public park, and college, Harvard University. In fact, in its mere 48 square miles, Boston houses more than 85 private colleges and universities and a student population of more than 250,000. This means the city has the second highest number of students in North America and the most diverse population in the country.

An interesting blend of old and new, Boston boasts a vibrant cultural scene and lively nightlife fueled by its young population and renowned colleges devoted to the fine and performing arts, such as the Berklee College of Music, The School of the Museum of Fine Arts, and the Massachusetts College of Art and Design. 

Professional sports are a religion here. Bostonians are passionate sports fans and professional, championship-winning basketball, baseball, hockey, and football teams call Boston home. Mess with the Boston Red Sox or New England Patriots fans at your own risk.
