Boston University Day in the life of a Boston University Student during Parents weekend

Parents weekend was a special time at Boston University. It means taking advantage of a car, your parents money, and seeing all the touristy sites Boston has to offer.

Outside the dorm Student Village or "StuVi" and the common area of the suite.

Our first stop after the three hour drive was at her dorm to get ready for our busy day ahead. This year she is living in a suite with seven other girls form her sorority, AD Phi. She's living in a single suite with the most amazing view of the Charles River.

(In order left to right) Loukaniko, Spanakopita, Strapatsada and Solomo.

Next, its time for brunch when we can venture off campus to Gloucester Street's Krasi! A chic, contemporary Greek restaurant great for a big group with their delicious, sharable dishes. A little on the pricier side for a college student which makes it great for when your parents come to visit (and cover the check).

After brunch, we window shop in The Prudential Center and Copley Place Mall until we to head over to Boylston street for some Boston history. The beautiful Boston Public Library, built in 1848, is a must-see building.

Bates Hall Reading Room

The reading room can hold up to 250 people at a time. It was packed on this rainy day and somehow still so quiet you could hear a pin drop.

Time for some shopping on Newbury Street! Aritzia, Glossier, Mejuri, Free People and more...

After a lot of sightseeing, shopping and mostly walking, we worked up quite the appetite and headed to Peregrine for dinner at The Whitney Hotel. Definitely an Uber ride away from the dorm but so worth it. My personal favorites were the kale caesar and fresh pappardelle.

We end the night with the amazing view of the city from the top of StuVi (her dorm). This is her favorite place to study, I can't imagine why.

Goodnight Boston!
