It might sound silly, but the way I go to class is probably what I will miss the most. The streets are so different from where I live that it’s impossible for me to forget them. The feeling of waking up, taking the T to the university, and just looking at the buildings, the people, and having conversations with my roommates are simple moments that will make me think of Boston University the most.
The Agganis Arena, in which I talked about in my post called “Put on that gear and cheer,” is also a place I will always remember. In France, universities or private schools do not have such amazing stadiums and sports are not considered as much as they are here. Also, the different shirts, jersey, and cap I have acquired this year will help me remember my time spent at the different sports games or concerts I have been to. By just wearing them, a part of me will still feel like a true Bostonian student. Obviously, the FitRec center is also a place that I will think about a lot, as it is very hard to find such a nice indoor exercise facility in France to practice sports.
My different trips throughout the US and Canada are also strong memories that I will remember ten years from now. If I can give you one piece of advice for your time at Boston University, it is to TRAVEL. You will bond with people and see amazing landscapes and cities. The fact that I was able to travel to amazing places (New York, Cape Cod, Montreal…) quickly and for cheap is what enhanced my year here. It is so easy and there is no doubt that I will look back to those moments as happy and adventurous ones.
