In a front page “Living” section article in the Telegram & Gazette, Neema Hakim ’14,  co-president of the Student Government Association at the College of the Holy Cross, shared his advice for new students on venturing into the City of Worcester, “I think Holy Cross students are interested in going out and experiencing the city.  One of the best things about Worcester is the restaurant industry here.”  He cites Baba restaurant on Park Avenue and The Bean Counter Bakery on Highland Street as two of his favorite hidden eateries.

The article, geared towards the thousands of college students who descend on Worcester each September, mentioned Holy Cross Magazine, which recently published a cover story   showcasing Worcester’s hidden gems and the City’s plans for expansion and enrichment downtown. The article also references, a bucket list the College created for students, “45 Things to Do in the Worcester Area Before You Graduate,” highlighting the top attractions in the Worcester area.
