5 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: We are right in the heart of Boston so there is so much to do and see without even having to spend a cent. Walk the freedom trail, visit the museum of fine arts (students go for free), walk around fenway park, go to roberto clemente field to play pickup sports. You name it and you can do it in Boston. The Red Sox and Celtics are fun events to go to and their is plenty of shopping just down the street or on Newbury street. We have restaurants and a movie theater within a 5 min walk of the school. It is an amazing location and can't be beat.

5 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: Boston is viewed as one of the greatest cities the United States has to offer and there is a reason why. The city is amazing, whether it is due to its great history or the energy of its people, no other city can compare. For example, when the Boston Red Sox won the World Series this past year, people filled the streets and it say people were ecstatic would be an understatement.

4 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: Fenway is a great environment for colleges. The atmosphere is safe and has many activities throughout the year that are affordable for students. Nothing is too far from campus and everything one might possibly need is in walking distance, including hospitals.

5 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: Boston MA! A truly great city no matter what age you are. There are plenty of great places to get food, and despite not a lot of nightlife for those under 21, there are a few 18+ clubs, one of which was actually pretty cool. There will always be something to do, even if it's just walking around.

5 College Senior

Local Atmosphere: Living in Boston is amazing and there is always something to do. If I could get a good paying job, I would absolutely live in the city.
