1.Explore the Area- Merrimack College is in the perfect location; we are in the center of everything. If your not familiar with the Boston area (and even if you are), take the train in and spend an afternoon exploring the city. While there is still snow on the ground, take advantage of how close we are to several slopes! Don’t feel like traveling far? Downtown Andover is one minute away and a great place to shop and eat. Get to know your college town!
2. Go to a Sporting Event- Beautiful weather is right around the corner (though it might not seem like it). Springtime is the perfect time to check out a lacrosse, baseball or softball game! There is still time to go to a basketball or hockey game too! Get out there and support your fellow Warriors!
3. Attend a Guest Lecture- Merrimack frequently brings many interesting speakers to campus. Take advantage of it! Orange is the New Black fans – Piper Kerman, author of the book which inspired the series, will be speaking on March 26th! It is free and open to all.
4. Get Active- (And running to class does not count). Take a Zumba or Body Pump class in the gym. Looking for a change of scenery? Pure Barre on Turnpike Street in North Andover is the perfect place for girls to get a great workout -beware, its addicting! In that same plaza is the newly opened, Title Boxing.
5. Seniors- Figure Out Post-Grad Plans -Graduation is in LESS than 100 days! Before all the fun starts (senior formal, senior week, graduation festivities) it is important to have your after college plans figured out. Visit career services if you have questions regarding the job search. Sophomores and Juniors – start looking for internships!
