First-Year Student Outreach Project (FYSOP) 2017

The First-Year Student Outreach Project welcomes and empowers new students to Boston University. Participants will explore the triumphs and challenges of our neighboring communities, and have the opportunity to connect with peers, local organizations, and the city of Boston. FYSOP encourages students to discover and celebrate our unique roles as active citizens.

FYSOP participants move into their residence halls one week early, on August 28, and engage with returning student leaders and the Boston community for the week before classes start. The program fee is $450, and scholarships are available for students with high demonstrated financial need.

Be a part of the solution by joining Read to a Child, a program dedicated to expanding a child’s access to reading role models. Spend one lunch break every other week at the Morse School in Cambridge (a short walk over the bridge) with a student in 1st – 4th grade reading aloud. Have a profound impact on his or her future, and build a relationship with a child that also helps give back. Click here to fill out our application and get more information!
