A day in the life of a Boston University rower

The Boston University Boathouse sits on the Charles River.

Boston University men's crew rower Tommy Morrison walks
across the BU bridge to practice on a cold day.


The Boston University crew crest is
embossed on a plaque in the boathouse.

The BUMC first varsity boat heads out on
the Charles River for practice.


Inside the boathouse, rowing machines
are stored for indoor practices.


Boston University rowers use the ergometers to
practice form and increase speed.
