CAB hosts a trip to Boston Bruins game

A bus load of 41 Castleton students set out on a three-hour adventure Feb. 1to Boston to watch the Bruins take on the Edmonton Oilers. The bus departed at 8 a.m. and arrived in the city around 11:30 a.m. giving the student’s time to roam the city before the 1 p.m. game.

“I’ve been to the city many times, but every time is a new memory and it’s almost as if the city changes. I love it here honestly,” said junior Allie Dwinell.

Dwinell and other friends joined her at a local bar where they grabbed some loaded nachos before the game. Other students simply walked around the city.

“I don’t get to go to the city very often, so I took advantage and bought myself a Bruins hat to represent. I’ve been a big fan of the Bruins for a while, and this trip made it so much easier for me to attend a game,” said freshman Morgan Young.

The Bruins won the game 4-0, making it their 35th win and goalie Chad Johnson gained his second career shutout, his first as a Boston Bruin.

“The Bruins game was a lot of fun! It was a great experience for my first time ever going to see a NHL game,” said Kara Doherty.  

The trip was made possible by the Campus Activities Board, a part of the Student Government Association, as a way to help bring students together.

“I work on CAB, so I think that it’s pretty cool we can do this type of stuff. The turnout was great for our school and the game as well. I really enjoy helping putting on these events,” Doherty said.

The students were able to sit up on the top floor of the arena and were treated to free food and a free Bruins hat.

“Sitting in a special box on the ninth floor was pretty epic,” said Doherty. 

Castleton student Kelsie Boudreau attended the game with some of her friends unaware that she could have gone on the bus.

“I bought this ticket months ago for over $100. I was so shocked that Castleton had this opportunity, especially because these tickets were only $40. It’s much easier and more affordable for college students to attend games. I had so much fun and I hope CAB continues to provide more opportunities for students to attend sports games,” she said.

CAB is talking to both the Boston Red Sox and the New York Yankees to see if they can get tickets to one of those games this spring for students to take another fun adventure on a bus into the city.
