Suffolk Students Party Through Exam Week, According to New Boston-Based App Wigo
Here in Boston, finals week is one of the few times when we expect places like Allston to quiet down a bit in the evenings. Most students lock themselves in libraries for days as they try to catch up on hundreds of pages of readings they never did, write paper after paper, and cram a semester’s worth of information into their brains before their big tests. But according to data collected by Boston-based party-planning app Wigo, 40% of students at Suffolk University didn’t let finals week stop them from partying, a percentage higher than any other college in New England. Babson College in Wellesley also made the top five in the region.
Top 5 New England Schools That Don’t Let Finals Stop the Party:
Suffolk University (Boston, MA)
Quinnipiac University (Hamden, CT)
University of Vermont (Burlington, VT)
Fairfield University (Fairfield, CT)
Babson College (Wellesley, MA)
Wigo, short for “Who Is Going Out?,” was launched in September by Ben Kaplan. The app allows college students to plan parties and other outings and to see where their friends are going out. It even includes a built in security function by blocking anyone who is not a college student from seeing any of this information.
