We’re Here! We’re Here!

School’s out! Or is it?

Last weekend, while some BU students packed their bags for their homes around the globe, many students chose to stay on campus to work for the university this summer. Believe it or not, the campus is buzzing  throughout the summer days of May, June, July, and August. Check out the video below to see why some students choose to work for offices like the CAS Academic Advising Center, Orientation, and our own Office of the Dean of Students over the summer.

So what can you do on campus this summer? The new Dean of Students staff thought about what we’ll be doing this summer, and we’ve got a few ideas for you. Here they are:

Have a sunny reunion with friends on the BU Beach after grabbing food at the George Sherman Union. The GSU’s summer hours are:

Monday-Thursday: 7am-9pm

Friday: 7am-6pm

Saturday and Sunday: Closed

OR Do something completely different at FitRec. They have summer classes in everything from aquatics to climbing to dance or you can visit them during FitRec summer hours, which you’ll find below.

Monday-Thursday: 6am-9:30pm

Friday: 6am-8pm

Saturday: 8am-6pm

Sunday: 8am-8pm

FitRec classes can be found at: http://www.bu.edu/fitrec/programs/summer/index.shtml

And we can’t forget the academic side of BU, so here are a few other options if you’re somehow missing the side of college life that involves, ahem, studying…

Take a class during one of BU’s summer terms. Whether you’re a current BU student, a high school student, or a visiting student, there’s definitely a class for you. Check them out at…


OR Study for the MCATs, GREs, or the upcoming test of your choice at Mugar Memorial Library. Here are the hours:

Monday-Thursday: 8am-11-pm

Friday-Saturday: 8am-5pm

Sunday: 10am-11pm

But what about off campus? Check back on Thursday to find out fun things to do around the city that cost less than $20 dollars. Plus, these upcoming ideas probably won’t involve the hoards of Boston tourists that fill our neighborhood cow paths in the summer months. 🙂

Terrier love,
