Bucket List

With under 6 weeks of class left what’s on your bucket list?

When it hit me over the summer that I only had one year left at BU, I started to remember all of the things I had meant to do as an eager freshman. I imagined myself doing something adventurous every weekend; checking out a museum or rocking out at some hole in the wall concert venue. With a friend, I wrote down everything we wanted to experience about BU and Boston before we graduated and (possibly) moved. Here are some ideas to get you started with your own list:
