Government Center MBTA Renovation If you take the T (Boston’s subway), you have noticed that Government Center is under renovation. You will have to wait some time before you can get on or off at Government Center. Daniel will give you a little history of the place and what to expect with the new renovations.

Frog Pond Ice Skating and Activity
Have you ever try ice-skating? Do you like ice-skating? Welcome December, it is ice-skating time. You have to visit the Frog Pond in the Boston Common. The Frog Pond has its own ice-making system and offers skate rentals and even hot cocoa at the Pond Cottage. The prime location of the Frog Pond makes it easy to squeeze in just few minutes of skating. After a long day at ELC, you should go ice-skating to relax and meet people. The admission fee is only $5, skate rentals are $9, and lockers are available for $2. Also, every Tuesday evening from 6:00pm until 9:00pm, you can skate with your university during College Night. Bring your current college ID and get half-price admission for just $2 .
