BU Central is Boston University’s late night entertainment venue, located right in the center of campus. Every Thursday, Friday, and Saturday night, we bring you the best in music acts of various genres, hilarious comedians, and whatever crazy events our staff can come up with. We’ve already brought some of your favorite bands and comedians — Tokyo Police Club, Ted Leo, Questlove, Bo Burnham, and Myq Kaplan— just to name a few. We have some wild and fun events like the Adult Spelling Bee, Drag Bingo, and Red Sox Nation. And if you aren’t too shy to get up on our stage, we’ve got events like BU for Show, an open mic night for everyone, Battle of the Bands, and BU’s Funniest Student.
What makes BU Central so great? Maybe it’s the intimate setting—with a capacity of only 400, you’re never more than a few feet away from all the action. There’s hardly a bad seat in there (unless you’re behind a pole). Or maybe it’s because you can always count on us to bring up-and-coming stars to perform. One day you might be able to say “I was there when (insert band or comedian here) played at BU Central!”
If you’ve ever thought about working in the entertainment industry, check out our leadership and volunteer opportunities. You can learn what it takes to plan, promote, and run a successful concert or comedy show, and even get the opportunity to meet your favorite band or comedian. Looking for some extra cash? Keep on the lookout for employment opportunities in BU Central.
In addition to all the quality late-night programming on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday nights, BU Central is the perfect place to come during the day. Bring your lunch, do your homework, challenge your friends to a game of pool, or just come relax and chill.
Harvard Stadium is a U-shaped football stadium in the Allston neighborhood of Boston, in the United States. Built in 1903, it was the first collegiate athletic stadium built in the United States, and was a pioneering use of reinforced concrete in the construction of large structures. Because of its early importance in these areas, and its influence on the design of later stadiums, it was designated a National Historic Landmark in 1987. The Stadium is owned and operated by Harvard University and is home to the Harvard Crimson football program. It was also home for the New England Patriots in the 1970 season, their first after the AFL–NFL merger, before the completion of Foxboro Stadium.The stadium seats 30,323. The stadium seated up to 57,166 in the past, as permanent steel stands (completing a straight-sided oval) were installed in the north end of the stadium in 1929. They were torn down after the 1951 season due to deterioration and reduced attendance. Afterwards, there were smaller temporary steel bleachers across the open end of the stadium until the building of the Murr Center (which is topped by the new scoreboard) in 1998.HistoryHarvard's stadium was constructed on 31 acres of land known as Soldiers Field, donated to Harvard University by Henry Lee Higginson in 1890 as a memorial to Harvard men who had died in the American Civil War. The structure, similar in shape to the Panathenaic Stadium, was completed in just 4½ months costing $310,000. Much of the funds raised came from a 25th Reunion gift by Harvard's Class of 1879. It is the home of the football team of Harvard, whose all-time record (at the end of the 2010 season) at the stadium is 427-222-34 (.650). The stadium also hosted the Crimson track and field teams until 1984 and was the home of the Boston Patriots during the 1970 season, until Schaefer Stadium opened the following year.

Fenway Park is a baseball park located in Boston, Massachusetts, at 4 Yawkey Way near Kenmore Square. Since 1912, it has been the location for the Boston Red Sox, the city's Major League Baseball (MLB) franchise. It is the oldest ballpark in Major League Baseball.Because of its age and constrained location in Boston's dense Fenway–Kenmore neighborhood, the park has been renovated or expanded many times, resulting in quirky heterogeneous features including "The Triangle" (below), "Pesky's Pole", and the Green Monster in left field. It is the fourth smallest among MLB ballparks by seating capacity, second smallest by total capacity, and one of eight that cannot accommodate at least 40,000 spectators.Fenway has hosted the World Series ten times, with the Red Sox winning five of them, and the Braves (then of Boston) winning one. The first, in the park's inaugural season, was the 1912 World Series and the most recent was the 2013 World Series. Besides baseball games it has been the site of many other sporting and cultural events including professional football games for the Boston Redskins, Boston Yanks, and the Boston Patriots; concerts; soccer and hockey games; and political and religious campaigns.

In 1999, the husband and wife team of Professors, Jin Au Kong of MIT and Wen Kong of UMass Boston, opened the Chinese-language bookstore East Meets West to empower communities through scholarship. In 2004, their son David Sun Kong and legendary poet Giles Li revitalized the bookstore for the Asian American community, organizing events that include the longest running Asian American open mic on the east coast. In 2011, David sought to expand the space’s impact to include technology and other art forms. He and co-founders Abel Rey Cano, Monique Nguyen, and Jack DeBoe established EMW: Art | Technology | Community. Together with world class innovators and organizations, EMW works to Expand imaginations, Make dreams real, and Write our own history.

Service was provided to an interim station between the two stops during construction. A wooden high-level platform was also built on the inbound platform to serve older Type 7 high-floor trams. BU Central is one of only five surface stations on the "B" branch that is handicapped-accessible .
