What It's Like To Go To School In Boston

It's America's college town! Whatever that means.

With over 80 colleges in the Boston area, chances are, if you didn't go to school in Bean Town, you at least know someone who did.

Because of this, Boston has earned itself the nickname "America's college town."

Really all it means is that Boston will never have to worry about its alcohol sales.

Boston's an OK city to attend college in if you value the changing seasons.

It's also a great city if you love sports.

And if you're looking for cultural diversity, you're in luck! There are kids from all over New Jersey, Long Island, and California.

It's a city steeped in rich American history, and it's home to many badass founding fathers.

At least there's stuff to do downtown! Museums, symphonies, ball games...

Boston has a bustling nightlife, though!

But Boston definitely knows how to party.

Speaking of Allston...

But it's all worth it when you realize the Common is your "quad."

The esplanade is your "campus."

And the North End is your "dining hall."

Going to school in Boston means knowing that a Smoot is an acceptable form of measurement.

And the T is free when it's above ground.

And Mike's may be the best, but the line is always shorter at Modern.

And the best time to redecorate your apartment is on Renters' Christmas (Sept. 1).

And only freshman try to transfer at Copley.

And dealing with the locals can be tricky.

Eventually you'll learn to love this kooky city.

Because no one does marathons better...

...no one screams the lyrics to this song harder...

...and no one loves their home away from home more than Boston students.

Even if everyone moves to NYC or L.A. a week after graduating.
