As I type this I am riding down Commonwealth Ave in Boston, MA.
Boston has always been one of my favorite cities. No matter how many times I go, I always find another way to fall in love with it each time.
At first I was a little apprehensive because I had told myself I didn’t want a big school, and I didn’t really like the idea of the campus being severed by streets and traffic.
I am happy to say that I was pleasantly surprised but what I saw while walking around.
It was a beautiful day for a walk and a meal at a local Italian restaurant.
The residential area of the University is enough out-of-the-way of the city that the noise and activity isn’t bothersome. The buildings and residence halls are also so beautiful and cozy.
It felt like I was in a story book as I walked town the street. The roads were empty and the tree lines sidewalks gave me a feeling of comfort. I could picture myself running the sidewalks in the morning or walking to get coffee with a friend.
I have been to Boston at least 5 times before now and have enjoyed every single strip. The city of Boston continues to have my heart.
Boston University just made my college search a lot harder. Let’s see what Boston College holds for me tomorrow!
I just finished my visit at Boston College! It was every bit as beautiful as I had heard.
It started to rain right as we got there but I didn’t let that ruin our visit. Again I didn’t have a tour guide, but the feel of the college was all that mattered to me.
However, if you visit a school, you really want to get a tour. That’s one of the best ways to get a real feeling of the people and culture of the college.

Back to the colleges: I had a really great time at both schools. I could see myself running on both campuses, and reading in all different locations, and getting coffee with friends.
One thing I especially loved about BC was the unique programs that they had to offer regarding my prospective fields of study. They had programs geared towards public good and culture, which are two focuses I would love to have while studying at college.
