BU Quad Bucket List #10: South Boston Street Festival

By David Bragha, the Quad writer If I had to pick one thing for everyone to do during their time in Boston, I’d probably tell them to attend the South Boston Street Festival. It isn’t necessarily the most fun thing to do in the city, and it doesn’t carry the obligatory blood alcohol content level […]

BU Quad Bucket List #9: Getting out of Boston

By Deanna Falcone, the Quad writer There are so many great things to do in Boston that it may seem pointless to leave at all. However, it is sometimes nice to get away from the hustle and bustle of a big city and relax in a quieter, yet equally interesting town or city. New England […]

By Meghan Ross, the Quad writer For some reason, as soon as I graduated high school, I decided it was time to mark my newfound freedom as a college student living on my own in a different city by becoming an avid concert-goer. Also, I really needed to experience live music beyond just the 2 […]

BU Quad Bucket List #4: Beer Me, Boston.

By Chree Izzo, the Quad writer (@chreewashere) With the weeks winding down until graduation, there are many things you should do in Boston before saying goodbye to Beantown. Catch a Red Sox game at Fenway, see a midnight movie at Coolidge Corner, nosh a cannoli at Mike’s in the North End. Now, all that’s well […]

BU Quad Bucket List #3: Explore local culture in Jamaica Plain

By Heather Vandenengel, the Quad writer While I love romping around Allston or Coolidge Corner as much as the next BU student, after the third night weekend in a row spent on Harvard Ave., I get a creeping feeling that I’ve seen it all before. And that’s when I head over to Jamaica Plain. Perhaps better […]

BU Quad Bucket List #2: Splurge on a great meal

By Stephen Maouyo, the Quad writer When I look back on my time at Boston University, it seems that there’s very little I did outside of school that didn’t involve spending money.  Lots of it.  See, I have two speeds when it comes to money management: complete saver or complete spender.  And, since only about 0.072% of the […]
