Collins Circle to Boston
Join ISSS as we travel to explore the historic city of Boston, Massachusetts. We will leave at 9:00am from Collins Circle and arrive in Boston around noon. Once there, ISSS staff will take students to different tourist locations or you can leave the group and explore by yourself. Everyone should be back at the bus by 7:00pm and we will arrive back at Collins circle at 10:00pm. Attractions include The Boston Aquarium, Harvard, and the Quincy Market! Seats are very limited so sign-up today.

Collins Circle to Capital Combat Zone
ISSS is bringing back paintball! Join us as we travel to Troy and take advantage of the spring weather and large outdoor field at Capital Combat Zone. Paintball is a face-based, adrenaline filled game where you run around and shoot each other with small pellets filled with paint. The cost includes transportation, and full package to the facility including 500 paintballs, unlimited air cartridges, and protective equipment so that you can stay safe. For those who don’t know about this sport, the paintballs do sting, but they aren’t strong enough to cause any permanent damage.
