Empire State of Mind

BY BRYAN LUIS // APRIL 3, 2013 //

With April here, students are preparing for big projects or tests, planning their schedules for next fall, and applying to summer jobs and internships. Needless to say, the stress level around campus is rising.

So, get off campus!

Student Activities is sponsoring a trip to New York City on Saturday, April 13. The bus will depart from Curry at 7 a.m. and leave New York at 8 p.m. Tickets can be purchased at the front desk at the Student Center.

The New York trip provides those who haven't seen the bright lights of Times Square with an opportunity to do so. // Photo from http://www.flickr.com/photos/snorpey/3317497657/sizes/z/in/photostream/ //

I have never actually been to New York. And as a resident of Massachusetts, I have only known it as a mortal enemy in sports and rival media market. But New York has great attractions for tourists, like Broadway, Radio City Music Hall, Madison Square Garden, and the Empire State Building. There is no shortage of things to do there.

Think about what you could do for 10 hours in New York City! For some, it could be a grand opportunity to explore a completely different culture. For others, it could simply be a day of stress-free, old-fashioned fun.

Find some friends to go with, and spend a day taking a bite out of the “Big Apple.”
