    There's almost too much to do sometimes. There are so many clubs and activities. I barely did any, so for anyone who is more involved than I am, you're most likely going to have a great time because I sure am having a great time.

    Being in the middle of Boston, there are loads of things to do. Personally, I enjoy going to concerts with the little extra cash that I have. Also look out for free events hosted by the different clubs on campus. There's a venue called the Paradise Rock Club located on West Campus, which is very convenient. There are parades in Cambridge (the island to the north), Fenway Park across the highway, holiday events through the streets and at the Common, and the Prudential Center (a mall) is only a 20 minute walk away. You can never say that you're bored.

    Being in Boston, there is always something to do. There are also a lot of clubs and student groups you can get involved in on campus.

    Join Clubs: act, sing, snowboard, build robots! There's a lot to do just within the BU clubs so definitely go to splash at the beginning of the year! go to the north end for italian, the harbor for fish, and quincy market for any other food related needs

    If you're have money and/ or you're 21, the city is a lot of fun. The social life is prevalent, but a lot of times there wasn't a lot to do in the winter, especially in the winter

    People go to party on weekends, clubs, or frat parties. But it's totally ok if you're not a party person like I'm not either, because you'll find your own people in this diverse and HUGE community.

    You're in Boston so there's really no shortage of things to do. Whether you're into sports (BU happens to be right next to Fenway Stadium), the arts, or really any kind of culture, there's something to do. Boston's transit system: the T as it's called, does a great job of being a reliable and quick transportation service. So really, all it takes is a quick Google search and you'll be on your way to some awesome local activity.

    You can shop at Newbury street (it's a short walk from the campus), Cambridgeside Galleria, or Quincy Market. You can also visit the science museum or the aquarium.
