Kristen Lang, a second year Social Work student, attended a hockey game at Boston University. Since Boston is a college town, you will always have a great selection of sporting events to attend in the area.
Recently, I attended a Boston University hockey game at Boston’s Agganis Arena. Boston University was playing the University of Wisconsin. Boston University is a short 20-minute T ride or about a 25 minute walk from the campus. In high school, supporting our hockey team was always a fun night out and with so many hockey-playing schools close by it is easy to continue the tradition.
Tickets to the games can cost as little as $10. You can ask a group of Wheelock students or other friends in the area to go with you to a game featuring a nearby university’s sports team. Even if hockey isn’t your first option, you are likely to find sporting events that feature your favorite sport. I think it is fun to be a part of the Boston sports community. After all, we are surrounded by many colleges in the area. Plus, Fenway Park (home to the Red Sox) and TD Garden (where the Celtics and Boston Bruins play) are close by.
You may even meet new people at these events. Your friends at Wheelock may know people who have friends at other colleges. I know at least 15 fellow high school graduates who are currently college students in Boston. At Wheelock, we always have fun activities. However, it’s also nice to know that in a big college town, you can also visit other schools and attend their sporting events.
