Bright and early the group made our way to Boston University for an information session and tour. The sessions were packed, with large tour groups making their way around campus in some pretty intense winds! After marveling at the lovely buildings in the BU area, and enjoying our tour, it was time for lunch!
We headed to Newbury Street for a relaxing lunch before spending some time walking around to stretch our legs before a little bit before visiting Northeastern University! This was our first (outdoor) self-guided tour of the trip, and the campus was packed! Current students were making their way all across the sprawling campus, but we were able to get a feeling for life at Northeastern by visiting the major campus sites and even checking out a few buildings where classes and research happens.
The wind got the better of us in some moments, and we happily piled back into our trusty Emma van to drive to Tufts University: there, we ran into the elephant, and explored a bit of campus using their self-guided tour points. The view from the hill at Tufts had everyone thinking of our own Mount Ida, but everyone was a fan of the general vibe and architecture of the campus.
Tired and a little wind-blown, we stopped at Fenway to decompress with some bowling before heading back to our AirBnB and settling in for the night. Ordering dinner in and hunkering down, students hung out on their own (time to relax) or filled the living room with laughter before everyone tucked in for a solid night’s rest thinking about tomorrow: a late start to get us packed up and on the road to Amherst College!
