Hi, I'm DJ. I'm studying journalism here at Boston University, and we're now inside Marciano Commons, one of three dining halls on campus and the newest. There are tons of food options, so follow me and I'll show you around.

Marciano Commons has over two floors of four star dining. So whether you want a burger, pizza, or any of the other international food options, there's always something for you. So one of my favorite things that happens here in the dining hall is our visiting chef series. So every once in awhile, BU will get a chef from the Boston area to come in and completely take over the dining hall. My favorite night of the year is lobster night, when BU gives lobster to everyone. And it gets all messy, but it's really fun to kind of watch everyone eat their first lobster. Right now, I think I'm in the mood for this tropical chicken salad, so I'm going to go enjoy it.

Marciano Commons is also home to two retail dining locations right in its basement. Behind me is Rise, a full-service bakery and cafe. And there's also Late-Night Kitchen, where you can grab a snack.

So thanks for checking out Rise, Late Night Kitchen, and Marciano Commons here in our dining hall. Whether you want to grab something really early in the morning or a fried food late at night, this is really the place to do that. But I hope that you come check it out in person, and I hope to see you soon.
