Years ago, it was common to walk into the Pub and not even get your ID checked, allowing you to slip on a fake bracelet and drink all night long! Today, this is highly unlikely, especially because BABO now has an electronic license card reader. These are not very good places for large parties, but they are great for socializing and mingling with friends. A free "beer garden" is provided by the school, so sometimes there is no need for a pre-party for the 21-and-over crowd. If the on-campus parties start getting boring and you are looking to get off campus, Boston is the best place to fulfill almost anyone's wants and needs.
If you're under 21, the nightclub scene is right for you because there are plenty of fun places that cater to the underage crowd in and around Boston. If you are looking to play pool with friends, go clubbing, or listen to a jazz band play, you can find all that and more in the downtown area. If you don't want to leave campus, there are plenty of parties, which are relatively chill compared to the dress-up game that you might be forced to play when going into Boston (numerous places have dress code rules). Plus, nothing beats getting free beer—whether it's at Roger's Pub or in one of the many suite parties that one of your friends is apt to inform you about.
