Can’t help being captured by the beauty and intricacy of the Christian Science Center every time you walk on Mass Ave or to the Pru? Well, stop staring and step inside!

As college students looking for something to do on a rainy day or to cost-efficiently expand your worldly knowledge, this is the perfect opportunity! The tour takes you through the original Romanesque-style Church and the 1906 extension while learning about the founders and history of Christian Science. For more details, click here.
Boston is home to an overwhelming amount of museums and resources that would be a shame to not take advantage of as a student.
