Be bold. Be creative. Be COM. @BU

Esra: Books to Read Over Break

I know what you’re thinking: Esra, why would we want to do readings over break?! Reading may be the last thing on your mind considering the never-ending scholarly articles, textbook chapters, etc. that you have assigned for your classes, BUT that shouldn’t scare you away from the amazing books out there. I’m personally a huge […]

Kaley: Danny’s Guide to Big Decisions

We’re rounding the corner. Away from late fluorescent nights in front of the computer screen. Away from walks down Comm Ave with eyes half open, feet dragging. Away from hurricaning thoughts about career paths and internships and away from nightmares about unemployment. We’re rounding the corner, into Thanksgiving break. A break that, in my opinion, […]

Claudia: My heart beats for the beat of Boston University

Now I know I’m not the only person whose heart starts beating ridiculously fast when they walk up to the third floor, but it’s not because of the three flights of stairs. It’s beating in sync with the beat of Boston University, aka WTBU. WTBU is my home away from home (away from home). While […]

Kate: How to spend this summer in Boston

If you love BU as much as I do, I bet you’re wondering how you can stay on campus or in Boston all year round. I have spent my past 2 summers in Boston working for BU’s Community Service Center through the BU Orientation summer leadership opportunities. The 2016 summer leadership opportunities include BU orientation […]

Hannah: An Oscar Speech of Thanks to BU

It’s with a heavy heart I’m writing my last blog post as a Com Ambassador, but I guess I should count myself lucky since that just means my heart is really, really full. Senior year came all too quickly. When people tell you college went by too fast – they’re not kidding. I guess the […]

Donald: Diving Into The Local Music Scene

Fall is one of the best times of the year for music fans in Boston because tons of bands are visiting the Northeast while on tour, following festivals like the CMJ Music Marathon in New York City, which I had the pleasure to attend on behalf of WTBU. While you should definitely go out and […]

Joe: Stop Whatever You’re Doing and Listen To This

“I feel like every time I see you, you’re stressed out about something” is a real thing someone said to me today. Like, with actual words from their mouth. But today will be different because the best time of the year is here. The ultimate party jams all mashed together it one beautiful and cohesive […]

Hannah C: Cool People You Didn’t Even Know Went to BU (And Some That You Did)

If BU’s impressive list of notable alumni didn’t influence your decision to attend the university, at least now as a current student you can enjoy the pride that comes with knowing you’ll join an awesome network when you graduate.  It’s impossible not to know about some of the superstars that once graced the sidewalks of […]

Jen: The Great Boston University Egg-Off

Egg sandwiches are a staple in my diet. I probably eat between one to three egg sandwiches a week. Nothing makes me happier than a toasted breakfast bread, with crispy bacon and, a properly cooked egg. No joke, I sometimes plan my day around when I can stop by a place to buy an egg […]

Kevin: Battling that mid-semester slump

The mid-semester slump is real. The stretch between Columbus Day and Thanksgiving can start to feel like you’re on mile 25 of a marathon. Luckily, there are some easy tips and tricks you can do to keep yourself motivated and your spirits high. Go for a walk It sounds cliché and boring, but give it […]
