With downtown Boston just seven short miles from campus, it’s easy to take advantage of city life, which includes everything from art and theater, to sports and quality dining.
As a freshman, I always figured it would be hard to get off campus and take advantage of the surrounding area, including Boston. I quickly learned about the shuttle service that Curry has to offer. It includes weekend transportation from the Student Center to Faneuil Hall, as well as weekday shuttle services to the surrounding area.
Here are just a few options of happenings in Boston that would be worth your while.
With the Red Sox’s disappointing season finally over, the fall weather reminds us that it’s time for some hockey with the boys in black and gold. You can catch a Bruins game or watch the Boston Celtics at the TD Garden.
The C’s offer college students discounted tickets to select games. The Bruins also offer specific “student nights,” when tickets can be purchased for $50. In both cases, don’t forget to use the promo codes.
Check out what is happening with Boston area theater. Happening now is the Lion King as well as Blue Man Group. If theater isn’t your thing, stop by the House of Blues for great live music.
Maybe you don’t want to spend the money to see a show? The Museum of Fine Arts is always an option that offers student discounts.
If you’re looking to escape the dining hall for a meal, I guarantee you’ll find plenty of dining options to meet your tastes. Fire+Ice is one of my favorite places. It offers an all-you-can-eat hibachi style menu, with endless dining possibilities. Monday nights are “college night,” which means your meal is only $10.99.
If you’re looking for some Italian, I suggest heading to the North End. Just don’t forget dessert at the world-famous Mike’s Pastry.
