A Day in the Life of a Commuting Summer Preview Student

As a Summer Preview student, you spend both mornings and afternoons learning in your seminar of choice. You take a break for lunch in the Marciano Commons dining room, which offers a large assortment of cuisines for all tastes, including vegetarian and vegan options. The dining staff can also help if you have food allergies or other dietary restrictions.

After the afternoon session of your seminar, you participate in fun, organized afternoon activities that give you a chance to socialize with your new friends and peers while introducing you to Boston and to Boston University. See the Schedule of Social Events for an idea of the exciting activities we plan. Commuter students are also invited to attend evening activities. If you choose to stay for an evening activity, dinner will be provided in Marciano Commons.

The schedule below will give you a better idea of what your days will look like.
