Schedule of Social Events

Group outings to Newbury Street and Faneuil Hall. Movie and game nights in the dorms and scavenger hunts on Boston University's campus these are just a few examples of the activities that students can participate in as part of Summer Preview. Fun program events help orient you to the city of Boston and help you get to know the other students in the program. Take a look at the schedule of events from last summer—it will give you an idea of how you will spend your time on campus.

In addition, we offer a workshop with the Boston University Office of Admissions. This workshop focuses on helping you prepare for the college admission process along with how to succeed when you get to college.
