Stacy: Want to Take Summer Classes?

Hey COM! So, I for one want to take classes this summer, but I also want to go back to my home in sunny Florida. Well guess what, this is possible! With transfer credits, you can accomplish some general education classes in your COM freshman / sophomore requirement.   I recently met with a COM […]

Kate: Where To Get the Most Important Meal of the Day at BU

You know that saying, “Breakfast is the most important meal of the day”? Well while it might be true, I’ve never been one to live by this motto.  Until recently. I’ve always been part of the camp that would rather sleep an extra 15 minutes than make a bowl of cereal.  But when I started […]

Kevin: My Top Movies for 2013

In the midst of awards season and with the Oscars right around the corner, it seems like all the talk around COM has been about movies, so I thought I should be a good film student and make my “Top 5 Movies of 2013” list. 5. Captain Phillips Pretty much anything with Tom Hanks gets […]

Kate: How To Dress for the Boston Winter

I have a morning ritual that includes checking my Weather Channel app from the warmth and coziness of my bed.  After a morning delay on campus because of Winter Storm Janis and a few texts from family members reminding me to wear a hat, I was a little nervous to see what today would bring. […]

Anneliese: Alternative Holiday Playlist

I like Christmas music, I really do. But every convenience store, airport, grocery store, shopping mall, etc. has been playing Mariah Carey’s “All I Want for Christmas Is You” on repeat since Thanksgiving, and if I have to hear it one more time I will personally set out to ruin Mariah Carey’s Christmas. Because she’s […]

Abby: Fighting Finals Colds

I’m writing this snuggled under the covers with a thermometer in my mouth.  I’ve come down with a sniffly, sneezing, coughing cold.  This is the first time I’ve been sick away from home and it is scary and daunting.  But I’ve been able to get through it.  I wanted to share what helped me the […]

Julianna: Gold-mining the StuVi II Mailroom

Want to know one of my favorite spot on campus? The StuViII mailroom. Random, I know. Well placed outside the StuViII mailroom (and at mailrooms across campus) is a plastic box stacked with unclaimed magazines. As an aspiring magazine journalist I lose my mind when I get my fingers on glossy pages. And so, I’ve […]

Kate: The End of an Internship Era

Over the past three years, I’ve spent four semester and two summers interning at five different places and yesterday marked the last day of my life as an intern.  Don’t get me wrong, I have loved the learning experiences and people I’ve met during that time but at a certain point, you’re just ready for […]

Sarah: Swan Song

This is a week of finals for me – my final week of college, my final week of interning, my final finals and my final blog post. After three and a half short years, my time as a college student – as a proud Boston University student – is coming to an end. Because it […]
