23 May - 8 June 2015
This summer, 16 of our students spent a fortnight on an activity-packed and adventurous tour to Boston from May to June. Organised by the Office of Student Success (OSS), the Summer Boston Study Tour gave Centennial College students the opportunity to immerse themselves in American culture and experience home-stay with host families in the United States.
Generally, students spent their mornings attending English classes and some of their afternoons having lectures on American history, politics and culture.
However, their afternoons were filled with a series of experiential learning activities including visits to notable landmarks such as the Massachusetts State House, the John F. Kennedy House, the Museum of Fine Arts and sites along the Freedom Trail.
The Harvard University tour gave students the chance to see the renowned institution for themselves. Of course, the famous Duck Tour had to be an essential part of the trip to complete the Boston tour itinerary.
We hope that through these overseas visits, Centennial College students will gain a more global outlook and a broader vision for their future.
