What the students said:

"This week has given me the opportunity to think about my future and see Boston through the eyes of a university student. As well as touring colleges, we had the privilege of seeing and experiencing many cultural and historical sites. As this week comes to an end, I feel more prepared and excited for the college search and my college experience." - Emma Hay, sophomore, Guided College Tour: The Boston Marathon

"This week, we have been able to learn outside of the classroom. We have discussed the causes of erosion and the influence of humans on the environment. These are topics that I feel passionate about, and I'm so happy SDS has given their students the opportunity to expand our learning horizons." - Susannah, sophomore, Take a Hike
