Young Professionals are Choosing Quincy

Posted by ENC on Mar 10, 2015 2:00:00 PM

Boston is an exciting city, full of art, culture, history, sports, academics, and so much more. But living downtown or in nearby Cambridge after college can get pricey, even with roommates. So where are people living in the Boston area after they leave college and start a career?

Quincy_MA_Town_Hall_1844-WikipediaAccording to The Boston Globe, Quincy is one of the top cities outside of Boston for people between the ages of 20-34. With over one hundred restaurants, four T stations with easy access into Boston, 16 museums and historical sites (including the original Dunkin’ Donuts), a thriving business community, and outdoor spaces like Wollaston Beach and the Blue Hills, it’s a great place to call home. There are events year-round, a summer concert series, and a revitalization of the downtown area aimed at bringing more businesses and professionals to the area. It's also located on the Life Sciences Corridor, the main transit (T) line connecting Quincy to biotech industries in Boston and Cambridge.

Eastern Nazarene College has called Quincy home for almost one hundred years. History majors can intern at the Adams National Historical Park, business majors can connect at the Quincy Chamber of Commerce or the Quincy Center for Innovation (both on ENC's campus), and students of all majors and interests can easily hop on the Red Line and be in downtown Boston in 20 minutes.

While campus housing is provided throughout your ENC undergraduate experience, many alums end up staying in and near Quincy after commencement to attend grad school or launch their careers from their new home-away-from-home.
