"Most students tend to get involved in a number of different organizations. There’s a lunch sponsored by the Office of Student Affairs during orientation where you can find out what groups exist that suit your interests."

"Whether you like to party, or just hang out with friends, Boston is a fantastic place to live."
— First Year Student
