Summer is just starting, but it will fly by and at the end, many of you will be starting your first semester of college!

You should be excited no matter what, to experience life in a new place and start working toward your degree.

But if you’re going to school in one of these cities, you’ve earned yourself some extra bragging rights.

1. Boston, MA

Boston, MA

I may be biased, since I go to school in Boston’s neighbor, Cambridge, but let’s just say I’m “well-informed” instead.

Boston is the epitome of a college town!

There’s BU, BC, Emerson, Northeastern, and many more—not to mention Harvard and MIT just across the river.

With that many students around, there’s always something to do and someone interesting to meet!

The one downside to Boston is that it doesn’t have much night life— just ask anyone from one of the schools I mentioned above!— but there are plenty of concerts and shows going on all the time, and great food, so your weekends are never truly boring.

2. New York City, NY
