Students say


Cambridge, especially Harvard Square, has a lot of places where you can just chat with friends and meet people from other colleges.

I love going to the Opera House to see ballets, plays, or musicals, visiting the many museums, finding new and tasty places to eat, shopping, and just generally walking around the beautiful city that is Boston with my friends.
