The Square

The Square Red Black Full

Every student group has their unique interests, passions, events, and goals.  The Square allows each group to receive the best support and resources for success.  Born of a need to offer greater support, focused training, and streamlined expectations, The Square is made up of five roads.  Each road includes unique benefits, support, and expectations based upon the style of programming and events offered by student groups.  The five roads are Deerfield, Bay State, Brookline, Beacon, and Commonwealth.  The Square launched in June 2016.
