Student Responses to Review Topic: What To Do For Fun

    Waltham isn't what you would call the epicenter of fun. Taking a free shuttle into Boston on the weekends is the best bet. You're bound to find someone in the dorms organizing a game night or you can go check out the multitude of different performances that are constantly going on around campus.

    Going into Boston is extremely easy and so fun. We have free shuttles from Thursday to Sunday, and if you want to go during the week, you can take the Commuter Rail (we have our own stop, yay!). You can also play with snow, hang out with friends, join a weird club (Quidditch, Ballroom, and Tango are all options! There are some real sports too, if you're into that). We have a decent gym... And we do have some fraternity parties, even though it's not the main scene. There are some nice restaurants in Waltham, too, so you can go out to dinner. The BranVan will take you with no problem.

    The commuter rail is literally on campus and accessing Boston, TD Garden for concerts, Celtics games, etc is amazing. The shuttle system is also a steal, as it goes into Boston (drops off & pick up) for free!

    There is often events going on each weekend. From concerts to musicals and art performances, Brandeis students always have the ability to participate in something on the weekends.

    There are plenty places to hang out in Waltham as well as Boston. The good thing is that it's very easy to get to the city with the Brandeis free shuttle. There are tons of colleges in this area, so you can hang out people people from Brandeis as well as those from all the schools around!

    You could go into Boston, or there's Moody Street in Waltham to explore. However, going into Boston requires either taking the shuttle which runs Thursday-Sunday, or the train.

    Every week and weekend you'll get emails from Student Union, Department of Community Service and Department of Student Activities letting you know what there is to do on campus. We also have free shuttle to Boston Thursday-Sunday.

    I spend a lot of time in Boston. Brandeis offers an excellent reprieve from the city life for those who want to relax in the suburban area of Weston and Waltham, while simultaneously providing easy access to Boston, one of the greatest cities in the world.
