What We Wished We'd Known: Advice for Alumni New to the City

  • Play some kind of organized sport, sign up for a class through the adult education program in your town/neighborhood, attend alumni events, and never turn down an invitation.
  • Don't get stuck in your neighborhood. There's a lot going on in the Boston area, and it's worth it to branch out, go exploring and appreciate the history.
  • Try to find a connection with someone. It can be very tough moving here, especially from the South (or any other friendlier places). It can feel fairly lonely when you first arrive, so it's important to reach out to coworkers or friends of friends or family to try to feel some sense of belonging. If you're not from the area, it can be difficult to break in. Be ready to put the effort in and you will get plenty in return.
  • Enjoy the fall!
  • Avoid the Green Line. Plan extra time when using public transportation. Walking can sometimes be faster than taking the T, especially during peak times (morning/evening) and especially on the green line. Biking, within a 3-4 mile radius, is by far the fastest way to get around, but also by far the most dangerous.
