Student Responses to Review Topic: What To Do For Fun

    Boston is equipped for the 21 and over crowd, which makes it tricky for people who aren't of age and don't have fakes. Often, people walk across the Mass Ave bridge and take part in the MIT/Harvard frat/sorority parties or even head over to BU to do the same. Northeastern is walking distance from the Prudential Center and Newbury Street for easy-access shopping, dining and strolling. Lots of underclassmen drink in their dorms instead of attending your traditional party. Boston is filled with concert venues and outdoor activities for when the weather's nice. Also for those of age/with fakes, there are a series of clubs that I know people go to. It's just hard to find things to do if you're under 21 and looking to party.

    Boston is a great place to explore historical places to visit. There are a lot of night life places to check out before school starts.

    College is a time to explore. Campus bustles with student groups and organizations putting on events. Most clubs meet once a week, and while some are certainly meant for resume boosting, most are just for fun. Parties happen off-campus, and Greek life is responsible for a disproportionate amount of them. Boston is an incredible city to live in when you are young, and there is never a shortage of things to do.

    No shortage of things to do in Boston, whether it be a quick walk to the Pru or going to see a show at the House of Blues, everything is a relatively quick walk or a couple of stops on the T. I hear the 21+ scene is nice too but I cant' comment on that just yet.

    Northeastern's campus is immersed in the city, so there are countless opportunities for fun! Boston is filled with hundreds of museums, shops, restaurants and markets. Everything is just a short walk or T ride away.

    It's Boston. The amount of fun things is almost limitless here. Almost every single major musician will make a stop here on their cross-country tour, not to mention Fenway is about a 10 minute walk from the school.

    Boston is a great place to go to school as there is always something to do. If you are not busy with a student group or life on campus the city itself offers numerous activities like shows, festivals, shopping, theater, restaurants, and workshops to attend and participate in. I recommend exploring the city whenever you get the chance.
