ADMITTED—Hey there, new Terrier! Looks like you could use some help on how to navigate life as an official Boston University student. Have no fear, The Bunion is here to bring you all the tips and tricks you need to know before you get to campus.

1. WEAR YOUR LANYARD

I think this one goes without saying. It is an absolute must to wear your lanyard at all times on campus and let everyone know that you go to BU—it’s basically part of the uniform here.

2. WEAR THE FRESHMAN BACKPACK

This one is such a cute way to show camaraderie with your fellow new Terriers! DEFINITELY wear the free backpack they give you at orientation. So adorable, so durable, and such a fantastic way to show off your Terrier Pride.

3. 2-HOLE PUNCHED PAPER

This one is so essential. Everyone and their mother knows it’s completely unacceptable to use 3-hole punched paper nowadays. That third hole is directly contributing to global warming by wasting an additional circle of punched-out paper.

4. EAT. AT. WARREN.

When I tell you BU dining it to die for, I mean it! Eat at Warren Dining every chance you get, and don’t let any of those dining swipes go to waste. The Michelin-star meals always hit the mark after a long day of classes and definitely don’t make you want to transfer to another college.

5. LICK THE GREEN LINE FLOOR

Licking the floor of the Green Line is an age-old tradition and SUCH an integral part of officially starting your journey as a Terrier. It’s also such an excellent way to boost your immune system right as you move to a big city that can often be an epicenter for disease. 

I hope this advice helped, and stay tuned for next week when we talk about the 5 Best Bathroom Stalls in Mugar Memorial Library! Go Terriers!
