Outside the classroom, Providence, which is 50 miles from Boston, is a fun city with a creative vibe, a thriving restaurant scene, craft breweries and laid back coffee shops. The America Mutual Pavilion (formerly Dunkin’ Donuts Center Arena), home to the Providence Bruins and Providence College Basketball, is right next door to the STRAC campus. Providence Place Mall, the RISD Museum, and historic College Hill, home to Brown University, are nearby. Parks along the Providence River offer places to walk, bike, relax and graze on food truck fare.

Beyond the city, the Ocean State’s beaches and harbors are a playground for surfing, paddling, boating, and fishing – and enjoying clam shacks and oyster bars! Newport’s hopping downtown scene is 45 minutes away, and Martha’s Vineyard, Nantucket, and Block Island are all just a ferry ride away.
