Zach: Best Apps for College

I am always on my computer and phone, in fact I should put them down more. But whatever! Here are some apps that have made my life easier at college! 1: Mint I’ve mentioned this app in a blog post before but it’s a banking app that allows you to see how much money you […]

Eliza: Thank you, Trader Joe’s

Since moving into an apartment at the beginning of this semester, two things have become evident to me: I didn’t appreciate my dining plan the way I should have, and Trader Joe’s may or may not be the promised land. My appreciation for Trader Joe’s comes largely out of respect for the way it has […]

Jen: When One Door Opens, The Opener Comes In

  Recently, I was on the phone with my mom and she asked me what I was doing this weekend. I told her I was going to a concert and her response was “another one?! Haven’t you been to enough concerts this month?” Now, I don’t go to a ton of concerts, but I do […]

Kreag: Surviving the End of the Semester

I don’t know how many other people deal with this problem, but for me, the end of the semester typically signals stress-time.  This isn’t necessarily due to the amount of finals or final papers I have, but sometimes everything coming to a close for the semester becomes very overwhelming.  Whether its projects in the weeks […]

Claudia: COM Ambassadors

Move over Taylor Swift’s girl gang, there’s a new squad in town — The COM Ambassadors! As a COM Ambassador, I have met some amazing, interesting, talented and overall wonderful people. Some have already graduated and others are fresh faces, but either way, I have made friends for life. Open House is the deciding factor […]

Hanna: Classes

I wanted to take this blog post to give a shout out to my favorite classes/professors at BU! I know many of us have already registered for the Fall semester, but there still may be time to switch around a bit! Here are a few of the courses that have truly made my time in […]

Claire: Boston Marathon 2K16

The Boston Marathon is upon us! For those of you who are not familiar with the Boston Marathon, it is a BIG deal here in the city. In honor of Patriot’s Day and the race, Boston University and most business are closed. So, that means everyone takes it to the streets to celebrate with friends […]

Chris: Moving Off Campus – A Step into the Real World

One of the decisions students have to make toward the end of each academic year is where they’re going to live the following year. Because I was abroad last semester, I had to make the decision during the fall as to where I was going to live this Spring. Unlike the previous three years, I […]

Donald: Advice to My Freshman Self

In just a few weeks, I’ll be walking across Nickerson Field in a red cap and gown and leaving BU, a place that has become a new home for me for the past few years. Graduating college is one of the weirdest things I’ve ever experienced. It makes you feel super nostalgic and reflective. Thus, […]

Eliza: Flying Solo: Abroad Alone

In case you haven’t heard, study abroad is kind of a big deal here at Boston University.  We love it, we won’t stop talking about it, and all the cool kids are doing it.  For a lot of people, (especially Communications people), study abroad comes around during junior year, mostly second semester, and involved taking […]
