Boston Immersion Trip: Application Deadline Feb. 7
Career Services is now accepting applications for its annual Boston Immersion trip. The trip, from Monday, May 14, to Thursday, May 17, provides 16 undergraduate students the opportunity to network with alumni and employers in the areas of finance, advertising, sports, higher education and entrepreneurship.
On the Boston Immersion trip, students will develop a deeper understanding of the opportunities, culture and inner workings of Boston. Students are responsible for providing their own transportation to and from Boston; all other expenses are covered during the trip, including lodging, transportation within Boston and all meals. The trip is open to all SU undergraduate students and all majors. Some of the past trips have included visits to Wayfair, Harvard University, Fasten, Bank of America and much more.
“Being a part of the immersion last year was incredible. It was clear that the students developed a deeper understanding for what the ‘world of work’ might look like in Boston and beyond,” says Jenna Collins, assistant director of alumni programs in Career Services. “Students established cross-campus relationships with other students and formed important bonds that will enhance their connection to SU, their peers and fellow alumni for life.”
Students interested in attending should fill out the Boston Immersion trip application. The deadline is Wednesday, Feb. 7, at 11:59 p.m. After students submit their application, they should upload a copy of their resume to OrangeLink under the documents tab for review as well. All completed applications will be reviewed by a selection committee.
An information session is also scheduled for Tuesday, Feb. 6, from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. in 107 Hall of Languages.
Students will be notified via email by Feb. 22, if they have been selected to attend the program. If selected, students are required to attend a professional development workshop on Friday, April 20, at 2 p.m.
