Boston, Massachusetts, often referred to as the “Cradle of Liberty” for its role in instigating the American Revolution in the late 18th Century.

Boston is a thriving metropolis of more than 625,000 residents. More than 250,000 students go to college in Boston and Cambridge, Boston’s neighboring city across the Charles River. There are more than 100 colleges in the Greater Boston area. As a result, the city is filled with students, recent graduates and young professionals, who give the old-world city a youthful, exciting atmosphere.

Boston has remained a world-class city by its ability to grow and evolve with the times, and very often, its propensity for staying ahead of the times. With the plentiful supply of college students and graduates, Boston has become a hotbed of research and innovation in industry. The crop of local college graduates has also attracted many businesses in the thriving high technology, biomedical, and healthcare industries, which keep Boston at the center of discovery.

Boston is also one of the most culturally significant and cosmopolitan cities in America. Home to dozens of museums, galleries, performing arts organizations and major sports teams, Boston is the unofficial cultural capital of New England. With so much sophistication in one city, there is always something to do and see.

Getting around Boston is very easy. Known as a “walking city,” Boston is also home to America’s first subway system, which is part of an intricate network of public transportation in the Greater Boston area. Bunker Hill Community College (BHCC) is located on one of the system’s stops - Community College Station on the Orange Line - making your commute to and from BHCC even easier.
