It’s almost impossible for Davide Nardi to walk down Comm Ave and not run in to someone he knows.
“I’ve grown up here all my life,” says the Boston native. “So I had to make my time at BU different. I got that by meeting so many people.”
Nardi has been a jack-of-all-trades around the BU Today offices for the past four years, and the staff has watched him blossom from a typical, somewhat uncertain freshman with an interest in journalism to a thoroughly outgoing adult whose anthropology major seems to be a perfect fit.
“My parents are from a small town in Italy, where everybody knows everybody,” he says. “So I’ve always had that mentality that if I know someone, I’m going to say hi to them.”
