Letters from the Editor: Update to Students about World Series Game 6

The Hub would like to share an additional message from Dr. Joe and Dr. Rissmeyer concerning Game 6 of the World Series, and possibly Game 7:

As we welcome the Red Sox back to Fenway and set our sights on being World Series Champions, let’s show the world we are all winners by being safe, respectful, and smart as we celebrate victory.

The college will be offering a Red Sox Game 6 Viewing Party (and one for Game 7 if needed) in the Jean Yawkey Center beginning at7:30 pm.  We urge you to stay on campus or in your off campus apartment to enjoy the game(s) with your friends and fellow students.

*Be reminded that there will be a large police presence around the area.  Our Library Parking Lot will serve as the staging area for the Massachusetts State Police Command Center.

*Access to campus will be limited as Brookline Avenue (St. Joe’s), Fenway (Loretto) and Avenue Louis Pasteur (Library) pedestrian gates will be closed.

*All Professional staff will be on duty in the Residence Halls during and after the game(s).

*The streets around Fenway Park will be closed to all vehicular and pedestrian traffic once the game is under way.

*Kenmore Square will also be closed to pedestrians and traffic.

*Parking on campus will be limited to only those who hold valid parking permits and relatively little parking will be available on the streets around the Fenway- look for posted notices.

*The Campus Shuttle will not run after 9:00p.m.

*Public transportation will be impacted by road closures.  (Check for details)

*Police will be videotaping to help identify those who may choose to cause problems.

*There will be zero tolerance for public drinking and for those failing to comply with police directives.  Arrests will be made and the college will take action through the Student Conduct system.

We want you to enjoy this time.  Please understand that it is not a time to be swept up in the moment when you choose to do something that could result in negative consequences for you and/or others.   As we have said previously, there have been unfortunate incidents in which students have been arrested, injured or even killed celebrating sports victories.

Have a good time but think and act smart!  Continue the tradition of Boston Strong!


 *PLEASE NOTE: all policies will remain in effect for Game 7 if necessary.*
