Auburndale Park is a short walk from campus with a beautiful scenery of the Charles River; it didn’t seem to get the attention it deserves until now. With towering trees, swimming swans, and ducks, it’s a great place for a study break. Even just a mental break from the chaos will do some good for everyone’s health. This lengthy trail runs along the river with the sunset shining- no wonder why there’s been more Auburndale residents checking out the park lately.

On May 25, the death of Minneapolis resident George Floyd at the hands of then-police officer Derek Chauvin set off nationwide protests, bringing to light racial in- justice and police brutality that Black Americans face. Black Lives Matter (BLM) was established in 2013 following the deaths of two Black men killed by police, Michael Brown and Eric Garner.
When Jim and Kathleen Muller decided to move back to the Boston area from Kentucky, they did not expect to find a piece of history nestled in their home. The unassuming yellow house that sits halfway up Studio Road drew Kathleen in with its beautiful studio, complete with 18-foot high ceilings and huge windows. The two purchased the home in the fall of 1999 and were informed it may have been home to an artist, but much of the information was unknown to them at the time.
