Boston You're My Home!

It’s been a little while since I have posted here on the blog! 

I’d like to start back up with a post about an extraordinary program that I am currently involved in here at Suffolk. 

This past January I was selected to be a student reporter for New England Cable News (NECN) and Suffolk in the City. Out of the 30 people who audition NECN chose 4 students to participate in the program. 

Thanks to the partnership between NECN and Suffolk’s Studio 73 I am getting a taste of what it is like to report LIVE on a major news network before I even graduate.

Every week I am working on pitching stories to a producer at NECN, filming person-on-the-street interviews, editing my footage, and then participate in live Q&A’s with NECN anchors. 

"Suffolk in the City" airs every Tuesday and Thursday around 7:50 am on the NECN "Morning Show"

For more info on the reporters check out this link: http://www2.suffolk.edu/college/49702.html

You can also check out a few of our broadcasts here: http://www.necn.com/searchNECN/search/search?q=suffolk+in+the+city&_search=Go

Freshman can live at all 4 of our residence halls. Unfortunately our housing process does not all students to specify where they would like to live so you will end up where ever our residence live office places you. I consider all four of our residence halls to be some of the nicest not only in Boston but also in the country! 

Well December is finally here and that means the Holidays are right around the corner! My room mate and I busted out the decorations this week to get ourselves into the holiday spirit. 

Throwback Thursday!

Last April, my friend and fellow Trustee Ambassador Gabriela and I went over to wonderful Fenway Park for it’s 100 year anniversary open house!

For those of you who don’t know, Fenway Park is one of Americas oldest and most beloved ball parks. It is also home to the Boston Red Sox! 

During the open house literally every nook and cranny of Fenway was open for public viewing. While we were there, we were able to walk on the field, touch the manual scoreboard and the Green Monster (the outfield wall), and even check out the press box!

It was a once in a lifetime experience and I am so glad I was able to go and check it out. 

Even if your not a Red Sox fan, I always suggest for people to try and go to a game at Fenway. I guarantee it will be one of the most unique and fun baseball experiences you will eve have! 

Had a chance to try out the new Earl of Sandwich sandwich shop located in Boston Common today. I had the Italian Sandwich which had Salami, Capicola, Roasted Ham, Mortadella, Italian Dressing, and Mozzarella cheese. Overall, I had a great experience. The only downside to the very small location is that everything is that the order and pick up windows are outside (which should be very interesting during the winter months. 
The building in which the restaurant is held is actually a historical landmark. It is called the “Pink Palace” and once was home to a mens bathroom. Earl of Sandwich purchased the building and started construction about two years ago. 
More information on the restaurants construction can be found on my other blog Boston to a T!

Went and got French Fry’s at Saus this afternoon! They are located at 33 Union St right near the  Holocaust  Memorial and Fanuel Hall. They specialize in Belgian street food including Fries (frites), waffles, and sandwiches. They have over 10 different dipping sauces available for the fry’s including bacon parm and homemade ketchup! They also have a large selection of German, Dutch, and Belgian beers on tap. Another great feature of Saus is that they are open late on the weekends (Fri-Sat 12pm -2am) You can check them out at  www.eatfrites.com/

Throwback Thursday! This photo goes back to September of last year when I moved into my on-campus apartment at Suffolk Universities 10 West St. Resident Hall! I shared the apartment with 3 roommates and there was 2 double rooms, a living room, full kitchen, and bathroom! 
Feel free to ask any questions you have about on-campus or off-campus living here at Suffolk!

Anonymous said: hey dan. i've just started applying to Suffolk University for public relations/image management. Can you give me an idea of how college life would be at Suffolk?

Hey there! 

Glad to hear that you are interested in Suffolk! First let me address your major. Our Public Relations major here at the university is placed within our office of Communication and Journalism. If your interested in what classes you might be taking for PR check out this list : http://www.suffolk.edu/catalogs/37092.html. 

In regards to college life, I have found the the two and a half years that I have been here at Suffolk have been some of the most rewarding and fun times that I have ever experienced. Being in the heart of Downtown Boston has also been a HUGE plus. Our “campus” is very unique, we don’t have your average college campus that is blocked in by set boundaries. If you are looking for that type of experience I would say Suffolk might not be for you. If your looking for a school that truly gives you the experience of living and interacting in a major city then Suffolk might be for you! 

I  know that was a all a little broad but if your looking for more specifics let me know (or you can always shoot me an email (dwlampariello@Suffolk.edu). 

Good luck with your college search!
