Events

The current guidance in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts does not allow gatherings of more than 100 people indoors and 150 people outdoors. This impacts the College’s usual event schedule, from Commencement to theater productions. We will continue to follow all state guidance in this matter, and will offer a robust schedule of small in-person and virtual offerings to engage our community in the meantime.
