Off-Campus Trips

We understand how important it is to experience activities off-campus. We developed our trips and discounted tickets programs to allow students to experience life outside of Brandeis, organizing group trips and providing discounted tickets for individual purchase. These trips are a great way to explore the Greater Boston area without having to plan the logistics of transportation. We're also a resource to connect students with area businesses that offer college student discounts.
