Most Common Banks at Harvard/Cambridge

edited June 2009 in Harvard University
My parents are looking to open a bank account for me, but before they do, they would like to know the most common banks residing in Cambridge. I only remember seeing a Bank of America when I went to visit Harvard. My parents currently have Wachovia. Is Bank of America any good? Is it the most common bank on campus; is it the best? If not, who owns the most banks/atms? Who owns the best?

    Bank of America is everywhere in Boston. Citizen's Bank is too.

    My D has been very happy with Bank of America- plenty of ATMs in convenient locations, and available at airports across the country when she travels. The Cambridge staff has been friendly, patient and helpful.

    Bank of America! There's a huge one right in Harvard Square, and 2 smaller ATMs a few blocks away, so it's always easy to access. The ATMs are terrific and allow automatic scanning and depositing of checks. I myself have a debit card with a checking account, with no fees.
