Event description

Description

As summer bids its final adieu, it's time for swissnex Boston’s annual Back to School event!

This year we're meeting again on Thursday, September 14th, from 5:30pm - 9:00pm at swissnex Boston and in the Cambridge Public Library's park right across the street, for some Fun in the Park!

Have a look at a recap from last year’s event.

Alumni Chapters, Swiss social groups, and friends will face off agaisnt each other and compete in five disciplines. You can find a tentative list below:

At registration, you will be asked to pick or create your team, or if you just want to join the event without participating in the games. You will meet your team members at the event and collectively decide who will compete in which discipline.

Following the games, we'll have a brief awards ceremony (with prizes courtesy of Emmi Switzerland and swissbäkers), a quick introduction to the swissnex team, and you will be able to learn more about the various alumni chapters and social organizations on some posters on display.

The goal is to introduce Swiss (or Swiss-linked) students, researchers, and alumni who are new to the Boston area to the Swiss Alumni chapters and social groups, and to provide the local Swiss community with a chance to reconnect after the summer holidays.




The posters will feature information on activities and how to connect with:

  • ETH Alumni New England Chapter
  • IHEID Boston Chapter
  • UniZurich Alumni and Friends
  • HSG Alumni Boston
  • SwissLink Boston
  • EPFL Alumni US East Coast
  • Friends of Switzerland, Inc (FOSI)
  • More to be announced!
