A Discussion on Student Housing

Last Friday we were soft in the head at this point in the afternoon and so we ask for your pet pictures. We were kind of embarrassed about posting such an obviously ridiculous blog until a whole bunch of you sent in your photos. We’re still getting pictures, including one from Danielle McNally who just couldn’t resist.

Anyway, this week we’re a little more put together and serious, which may or may not be a good thing for a Friday.

Continuing with our very apparent theme on students this week, we bring you A Discussion on Student Housing in Boston. Having so many students in our city is unarguably positive for Boston, but it does put some stress on our housing market. The fairly recent graduates among us feel this pinch when we head out to rent our first place.

Northeastern professor and leading intellectual Barry Bluestone will be on the panel alongside Linda Kowalcky of the Boston Redevelopment Authority and Sara Eskrich, aide to City Council President Mike Ross.

Date: Tuesday, October 12th

Time: 6:00-7:30

Location: Munce Conference Room, Archer Building at Suffolk University at the Corner of Temple and Derne


HubNob at House of Blues – A Can’t Miss Event for a Great Cause

Boston Centers for Youth and Families (aka Boston’s network of community centers aka BCYF), is something you all should know about. Cheap gyms? Check. Pools and tennis courts? Check. Free event spaces? Check.

Well, on November 10th, BCYF hosts HubNob at the House of Blues.

HubNob promises to be the ultimate local celebration of culture, civic commitment and just plain old fun.

Enjoy food from local restaurants, local music, and tons of silent auction items. Also, if you haven’t been to the new House of Blues yet, you’re required to come to HubNob because that alone is worth your trip.

Best of all?

All proceeds generated from this event will support BCYF programming in the areas of Arts, Education, Civic Engagement & Leadership, and Sports, Fitness & Recreation that serve more than 90,000 Bostonians yearly.

Date: November 10th

Time: 7:00-10:00pm
