New England is the historic center of America. Cities like Boston, New Haven, and Hanover are deeply rooted in history and culture, but it also is the original hub of academia and technological innovation. Here in New England, some of brightest minds from around the world attend the famous Ivy League institutions of Dartmouth, MIT, Harvard, and Yale. Wouldn’t you like the opportunity to spend a summer working on the same campuses and holding classes in the same buildings as Buzz Aldrin or Mark Zuckerberg?

New England is as entrenched in history as it is in culture, and we want to bring you closer to all of it by inviting you to apply to work at some of the most renowned campuses in the world located throughout New Hampshire, Massachusetts, and Connecticut! These states are known for their natural beauty, rich history, and vibrant culture.
Here are our top ideas for things to do on a weekend off in each of NH, MA, and CT:
Boston sports fans are the proudest and loudest in the nation as they watch the Red Sox at baseball’s oldest stadium, Fenway Park (opened in 1912). The Red Sox have ditched their ‘Curse of the Bambino’ by winning the 2004 World Series in dramatic fashion, and have since won World Series in 2007 and 2013. Due in no small part to the always passionate fans, Fenway Park is regarded as the best place in the country to see a live baseball game. What better way to spend a Saturday afternoon?
Go Red Sox!
