Statehouse Visit and Taste of Cambridge!

Today the International Law class visited one of the Massachusetts courthouses and spoke with Judge Cordy about government and law. They learned a lot about the history of the courthouse and proceedings in MA, and got to spend time exploring one of the most historic courthouses in the USA. In the evening, the program went to famed food festival ‘Taste of Cambridge,’ where the students were able to sample the best cuisines from around the Cambridge area!

 

Red Sox Game at Fenway Park

Tonight was many of our student’s first baseball game! Fenway Park is the oldest baseball stadium in Major League Baseball in the US, and catching a Red Sox game is one of the best things to do in Boston. We were lucky to see the Sox win 10-8 against the Toronto Blue Jays. Students who stayed up for the whole game were able to witness some of the biggest Red Sox traditions, like singing Sweet Caroline in the 8th inning, and Take Me Out to the Ball Game.

Neuropsych and Medicine Trip

Today, our neuropsychology & medicine students teamed up to head over to the Warren Anatomical Museum on Harvard Medical School’s campus in Longwood Medical Area. Longwood is a really exciting area of Boston for those interested in medicine or related fields in the sciences – it’s home to some of the best hospitals in the world, many connected by innovative bridges to allow for collaboration, research, and patient care across institutions. The main attraction of this field trip was getting to see Phineas Gage’s skull! Students were also able to see a bit of the area and Harvard Med School’s campus.
