One of the ideas behind going to college is that you learn. . .

But it’s not just the gut, freshman-year stuff like how to write a topic sentence or Maslow’s hierarchy of needs that you learn, but also how to get around the area surrounding campus, where to grab a cheap bite, and what there is to do around here over a long weekend when you’re not heading home. And you’re probably also looking to your time in college for more intangible stuff—good times, new experiences, the works. You’re probably paying a lot of money to learn the textbook stuff, but we’re here to help you out with the rest of it for free with City Paper’s second annual guide to Baltimore just for you.
