Bay State College first opened its doors In 1946 to serve the airline industry. By 1961 it had moved to its current Black Bay location, set right in the heart of Boston, Massachusetts. It prides itself on its Boston location, nearby entertainment, shopping, museums, culture, nightlife, and a quarter of a million other students nearby, enrolled in 35 colleges and universities. Set right on Commonwealth Avenue, Bay State allows students to take advantage of Boston as a “walkable city” or explore a little farther by taking the “T” train around town. Trendy Newbury Street is just a block away, and iconic Fenway Park also nearby.
