After some stressful weeks of midterms, projects, and all-nighters, my friends and I were counting down the days until the HOCR. It's by far the best weekend of the year in Boston, when over 400,000 people from all over the world come together to cheer on their favorite crew. You can feel the rush of excitement around the city from the moment the HOCR signs are posted along the Esplanade to the morning of the event when we are awakened by the sounds of screaming coxswains outside our windows. Every year, the HOCR is the place to gather around with friends, cheer for your home crew (Go BU!), and of course, stop by the Brooks Brothers tent.
Happy 50 Years to the HOCR!
