Springing Back Into Sunshine

After breaking the Boston Snow Record, numerous class cancellations and some epic snowball fights, the dreadful and seemingly eternal winter of 2015 is finally winding down. With March quickly speeding by and Easter Break approaching, here is a list of activities and events to look forward to this spring!

Marathon Monday—Monday April 20

Easily one of the best times of the year, Marathon Monday is an unforgettable experience for the BC community. There are no classes and almost the whole campus comes out to cheer on the runners as they finish the trek up Heartbreak Hill. So come join the energetic fun—and don’t forget your tank top!

Red Sox Games

What says spring more than baseball? Even if you are not an avid fan, a trip to Fenway is an experience everyone should have at least once. The Home Opener is Monday, April 13 against the Washington Nationals.

Kayaking on the Charles

Don’t let the temperature fool you, take advantage of the new season, invite your roommates and head to the Charles for the day. Warning: The water is colder than it appears.

Modstock—TBD

BC’s own spring concert thrown where else but the Mod lot. This years performers have not been announced yet, but the event is sure to be worth a trip down the Million Dollar Stairs.

Swan Boats Open—Saturday April 18th

A tradition that everyone in Boston should experience at least once, the swan boats are a relaxing way to see Boston. Stop by the North End or Quincy Market afterward to get some lunch and cannolis.

No matter your interests, take a trip out of the BC Bubble and into Boston. Shop on Newbury Street. Walk the Freedom Trail. Visit the Back Bay. Boston is a vibrant city with infinite opportunities so take advantage of the weather and try something new.
