Life in Boston

As a Questrom student, you will have the opportunity to take advantage of all that Boston University has to offer.

Boston, the most European of American cities, is many things to those who study here, but above all, Boston is a vibrant city defined by unparalleled cultural, ethnic, and social diversity. Boston is an evening stroll through Beacon Hill. A morning row on the Charles River. Opening Day at Fenway Park. Tracing the steps of the American Revolution along the Freedom Trail. High-end shopping on Newbury Street. People-watching at Faneuil Hall Marketplace. Dancing the night away on Landsdowne Street. Al fresco dining in the North End.

While it’s called the “Athens of America” because of its many academic institutions and commitment to intellectual curiosity, the city is more than just the sum of its colleges and universities. And you’ll be just a short walk, subway, or cab ride away from all of it.With a quick drive or bus ride, you’ll find yourself on the shores of Cape Cod or the ski slopes and hiking trails of Maine, New Hampshire, or Vermont. Travel lovers will enjoy exploring the regional foods, bike trails, antique shops, quaint villages, and historic sites commemorating the early settlers. When you come to Boston University, you get all of New England as a bonus.
