End Day Off Campus & Commuter Student Appreciation Week (Multi-Day Event)

Off Campus Student Appreciation Week is held each semester and is hosted by the Off Campus Housing Office in collaboration with the Student Government Association, various departments and student organizations. We acknowledge the extra effort off-campus students make to each day with a week dedicated to their effort in commuting, getting involved, and staying active in the Suffolk Community. The week includes events such as Coffee Stops each morning, an Appreciation Social, Bingo Night, and Community Service in the Boston area.

8:30 AM - 10:00 AM Commuter Coffee Stop
Swing by for some (FREE) freshly brewed Starbucks Coffee and a yummy treat. In an effort to stay green, we encourage you to bring your own travel mug to fill up!

9:00 AM - 4:00 PM Dedicated Writing Day
On the last Friday of each month from 9:00 AM - 4:00 PM each day, the CTSE hosts Dedicated On-Campus Writing Days. This is a time for faculty writers to dive into writing projects with concentrated time, effort, and support. This session will help you keep the momentum going with your writing projects. We'll provide the space, and peace of mind - you provide the words. Choose to attend a morning session, an afternoon session, or stay for the whole day! If 10 or more people sign up, the CTSE will provide lunch.

Register here.

6:00 PM - 9:00 PM Conversations about Race in American History- "Beyond the Fields- Slavery at Middleton Place" Documentary screening and discussion

Beyond the Fields – Slavery at Middleton Place is a documentary production of the Middleton Place Foundation that illuminates the lives led and the contributions made by some seven generations of people owned by the Middleton family in the 18th and 19th centuries.

The Foundation has long been engaged in research and documentation that informed the interpretation of the history of the families – both black and white – that built and occupied Middleton Place from its founding in 1741. The documentary supplements work undertaken in the early 2000s that culminated in a book, also titled Beyond the Fields – Slavery at Middleton Place, that was published in 2008 and which itself was an offshoot of an exhibit of the same name mounted in Eliza’s House, a freedman’s house built in 1870 that is similar in style to antebellum slave cabins.

Following the screening there will be a panel discussion with people involved in the film.

7:00 PM - 10:00 PM Star Wars Episode: Murder - Dinner Theatre Performance
