She's Left The Home And She's All Alone

I spoke to my niece last night on FB. She has arrived in Boston, America to begin her Masters. The course hasn't started yet and she has already started living a student life. I remember my student life and I loved it. I was a bit worried when she started saying that she has to ask for lifts into town because the bus service is so sporadic. It worries me in general that young ladies are having to ask strangers for a lift into town. I know she is intelligent enough and she can be quite naive as can anyone who has never lived away from home before. It just surprises me that no university bus service is in place for students when they arrive at their dormitories BEFORE courses begin. I have her advised her to contact those who are already there as well as any house service personnel who may be able to help her. (c)Nar2/crystalvisions2016.

that will be something she gets use to because it's the norm out there. Just like the buses don't run all night in some areas.

I'm kind of surprised about that, too. Boston is a big city and I thought they had great transportation systems. I think you're right, she should check with whoever is running the dorm

I think its not good to ask any stranger for help but anyway the earlier she gets used to the commuting routine the better.
