Welcome to the city that never sleeps! For your first weekend with us, we would like to get you acquainted with your new "home!" During this event, we will be riding in style on the top deck of a Double Decker to learn all about the history of this town, how it got the name of the "Big Apple" and what is native to a New Yorker from Manhattan. You will get a glimpse of the Empire State Building, Ground Zero, Wall Street, Rockefeller Center, and Lincoln Center just to name a few. You can make any notes on sights that you may want to go back and visit in further depth. You will not want to miss out on learning all about your new home for the semester! Come join us as we get settled here in the city that never sleeps.
Go Yankees! Come join us as we celebrate one of America's favorite past times. We hope that you are just excited as we are to experience the brand new Yankees Stadium! While some of you will mourn the demolition of "the House that Ruth Built," others anxiously wait to experience the roar and energy of the new stadium! Join us at a Yankees game in the Bronx and you will understand why New Yorkers are so united under the Yankees' contagious spirit! Bask in the sun with your fellow participants and experience Yankees Stadium!
One of the biggest attractions of New York City is Broadway, with shows that glitter the theaters of Times Square.

Picture this - all of your closest friends are all decked out in their best black, white, or red attire for a classy event on a luxurious cruise boat on the waves of the Hudson. Escape from the hustle and bustle of the city, and revel in this sunset cruise. We will disembark from Chelsea Piers and begin with a delectable dinner followed by dancing the evening away to some of your favorite songs. When you need a breather from cutting a rug on the dance floor, take a step outside and get a bit of fresh air on the balconies while taking in the breathtaking views of the Manhattan’s skyline and New York City's greatest landmarks, including the Statue of Liberty. This event is one of the biggest hits of the summer!
The staff will plan unsponsored activities for the entire group to take throughout your stay. These activities are optional, but they will make sure to get you acquainted with your new city, as well as keep your social calendar full.
