Welcome to Student Activities at BU MET!
As a student of Boston University’s Metropolitan College (MET), you have access to a wide range of resources designed to immerse you in the Boston University community. You will find clubs and organizations, career networking events, and excursions that encompass everything from fall apple-picking, to bowling nights, to watching the Boston Celtics play at TD Garden. We encourage you to take the opportunity to connect with BU’s diverse community of students and scholars from around the world.
In light of COVID-19, we have transitioned to offering a wide range of virtual events these last few months. BU MET students have participated in virtual game nights, drawing workshops, cooking and baking demonstrations, yoga and meditation classes, and even a comedy writing series. Check out our MET Events calendar to sign up for upcoming events!
