Boston is a city that is populated by thousands of students, due to the number of universities and colleges (about 60 all together) in the area—something that is also described by most as one of the greatest benefits for BU students. Since there is no reason to be stuck on campus, the best way to have a good experience is to take full advantage of the city.
Due to the overwhelming population of young people in Boston, it is sometimes easy to forget that there are older people and little kids around. Considering this fact, however, the city remains relatively conservative. Everything shuts down at 2 in the morning, mainly due to Puritan liquor license laws. There are even laws preventing the sale of deodorants on Sunday (this is no longer enforced, but remains in existence).
