When we talk to students at different schools throughout the year, the biggest question we get is “What is there to do in this city?” Usually, I respond back with “Well, what interests you?” At that point, I usually (not all the time) I get that deer in the headlights look, because we’re human – we’re interested in different things and open to new opportunities. Baltimore is a great college town with plenty of attractions and activities to participate in and the Baltimore Collegetown Shuttle can definitely get to you a lot of places around town.
So here’s the deal: A couple times a week, we’re going to post a little something called the Shuttle Spotlight (queue disco ball drop), which will basically highlight an event and/or attraction you can visit using the Collegetown Shuttle and other transportation options. We want you have a great on-campus experience, but branching out is just as important, and we can totally help with that!
To kick this off, we’re going to shine the spotlight (queue bright lights and drumroll) on the Walters Art Museum’s College and Arts Community Night to be held on Thursday, September 22 between 6 to 9 PM. There will be some commentary from the curator, light refreshments and drinks, an LED hula hoop dance (no typo here, seriously LED hula hoop dance!), and some dancing. The staff does an excellent job of putting this event together every year and it’s definitely a must see. Of course, don’t just redeem your one-time pass to the Walters and fuhgetta about it – there are rotating exhibits all year round!
Now, how do you get there? Simple! Take the Collegetown Shuttle – blue or red route – to Penn Station, hop off, then transfer onto the Charm City Circulator’s purple route. The Charm City Circulator is a free bus as well, so don’t worry about shelling out some coins for the bus – we got you covered! Ride the bus all the way down to Centre St and walk a few blocks west directly to the main entrance of the Walters. Show your student ID and you are golden!
