How can you spend your free time on campus?

There is something that you can do at BU in your free time. If you are an on-campus student, it is easier for you than for off-campus students to enjoy following things.


For BU students, the Fitness & Recreation Center is free. Just go to Fitrec with your BU ID, and exercise! There are so many choices in the center. You can exercise with sports equipment on the first floor, or run on the jogging track on the third floor. In the basement, here are climbing wall, basketball courts, badminton courts, squash courts, and so on. You can also use swimming pool. There are competition pool and recreation pool. In addition, in the recreation pool, there is a spa. You can enjoy this everything for free!





From October to March, you can enjoy ice hockey games! BU Terrier men’s ice hockey team is one of the best team in east championship. You can get a ticket for $15 with your BU ID from the Agganis Arena ticket box. The ticket box is located on the left side of the Fitness & Recreation Center. The ice hockey stadium is in the Agganis Arena building. Not only BU students, but also local people watch those games. So during the ice hockey game, you can experience American sport culture. In my experiences, it was wonderful! Of course, you can enjoy some snacks in the stadium.


You can spend your free time on the grass! Spring, summer, fall in Boston are fantastic. If the weather is sunny, it is great to spend time on the lawn on campus. You can sit anywhere on campus. I usually went to Nickerson Field on West Campus. BU beach is also a great place. You can sit on the playground and enjoy the sun as studying or reading books.

If you are a person who really likes to read books, and are not satisfied with libraries, you can go to Barnes & Noble in Kenmore square. On the second floor, there are some sofas for people to read books. You can see the street around Kenmore while sitting down on those sofas. The view is great. So, if you don’t have enough money, but want to read brand-new books, go to the Barnes & Noble! Of course, this is my favorite. If you prefer to buy, buy it!
