Boston is where the USA began. Located in the urban center of the region called New England, this is the country’s most international city. Rich in history, with an impressive architectural heritage, Boston is also where the computer and biotech revolutions began and where academic life is most heavily concentrated.
Harvard, the nation’s oldest and most famous university, is here. So are some sixty other colleges and universities, including MIT (Massachusetts Institute of Technology), one of America’s leading centers of science and engineering. Altogether these institutions draw hundreds of thousands of students to Boston. They generate the youthful, forward-looking energy the city is celebrated for.
You’ll find ELC in the middle of it all, in the heart of the vibrant and historic Beacon Hill. It’s the best location in Boston for students.

Afternoon excursions will take you to Cambridge, where Harvard and MIT are located, the Freedom Trail, the Museum of Fine Arts, the Museum of Science, Copley Place Mall and sports events of all kinds.
Outside the city, the countryside is inviting in all seasons. Sun seekers praise the sandy Atlantic beaches stretching south to the dunes of Cape Cod and north along the New Hampshire shore to the picturesque coast of Maine. Skiers rave about the facilities, dependable snow cover, and beautifully groomed trails of the region’s numerous mountain resorts. And nature lovers from all over the country visit the Berkshire Hills in western Massachusetts each autumn for the brilliantly colorful foliage.
