Rain, snow or shine, the 2018 Boston Marathon at Boston University is here. Preparations are well under way for another day of drinking, dancing, screaming, and general hormone-fueled chaos on college campuses across the state of Massachusetts. BU is no exception. Students have demonstrated their love for Marathon Monday for as long as history can remember. They show their spirit for the heroic and persevering athletes running the 26.2 miles by engaging in grueling marathons of their own—marathons ranging from downing 26.2 shots (not really) to taking 26.2 bong hits (eh maybe?).
In light of this admirable collegiate dedication to a long-running Boston tradition, we’ve developed a “By the Numbers” list a la Sports Illustrated. It quantifies just how committed us Terriers are to honoring the advent of the Boston Marathon. Empirical evidence, y’all! #FrancisBacon

Experts have hypothesized that freshmen gain around 95 percent of the Freshman 15 over the course of Marathon Monday.
Karl Pearson once said “statistics is the grammar of science.” In accordance with that statement, we hope that we’ve provided you with quantifiable grammar to accompany the science of Marathon Monday. Now get out there and f **k around, ye wild Terriers!
