The semester has started and school is back in session, which means… I’m a second semester senior. As I’m writing this, there are 104 days 16 hours and 13 minutes (give or take) until I am a Boston University graduate. Crazy, right? BU (COM especially) has been my home over the past three and a half years and it’s weird to think in a little over 4 months, I could be in a completely different city. So here it is (a classic senior move), my Boston Bucket List, BUT with a twist. Here are some of my favorite things of the past three and a half years that I hope will make it on your Boston Bucket List!
The Boston Classics:
Go to the movies at Coolidge Corner Theatre: The Coolidge Corner Theatre may be my favorite place in all of Boston. I’ve seen some pretty great movies in this beautiful picture house, but the Midnight Movie series is a highlight of my college experience. I rang in my 19th birthday at a screening of Romy and Michelle’s High School Reunion.
Mike’s Vs. Modern Cannoli Taste Test: My personal favorite – Modern Pastry
Have a picnic on the Commons: My sophomore year roommates surprised me with a beautiful picnic on the Boston Commons for my 20th birthday.
Cheer on the Red Sox: No BU Bucket List is complete without going to a Red Sox game.
Eat a delicious pasta dinner in the North End
Go to the Cape: You can take the express Cape Cod Flyer from South Station to Hyannis!
Eat plenty of lobster rolls: The Barking Crab is a personal favorite
Go to Salem on Halloween: SPOOPY!
Go to Boston Calling: LORDE. CHILDISH GAMBINO. BLEACHERS, ALT-J. HOZIER. WALK THE MOON. Enough said.
My BU Favorites:
Broadcast Live on 89.3 FM: WTBU Radio has been a wonderful community and will forever hold a special place in my heart
Attend EVERY Lobster Night: And in Warren Towers, of course…
Write and produce your own TV pilot: My sophomore year I co-wrote and produced a 40-minute TV pilot (you can check it out at vimeo.com/entidaled)
Learn what it means to be a BU Boss Lady: I was lucky enough to join the HotHouse team last fall and travel to LA to film BU Boss Lady. I left the trip inspired by these boss BU alumni and eager to start the next chapter of my life
Shut Down Warren Dining: There have been plenty of nights my friends and I have been the last people in the dining hall
Lose your voice at the Beanpot: During my Freshman year, the Polar Vortex delayed the Beanpot, but that didn’t stop us from cheering on our winning team
See a show at CFA: My best friend Hannah is an acting major and all I have to say is WOW.
Study Abroad: My semester with the BU London Internship Program was life changing. Check out my adventures here
Work with your best friends: The COM Ambassador program was not only a great platform for sharing how much I love COM, but it also strengthened the bond between me and some of my best friends.
Staying up late in Warren Dining might not seem like a favorite moment at first, but I’ve laughed so hard in those red vinyl chairs that there’s no way my BU experience would be the same without it. All in all, enjoy your time at BU and make every second count.
