The faculty is usually attentive and pretty entertaining. Most professors know exactly what they're talking about and provide insight into difficult fields with ease. I took the Core Curriculum and am learning much about history and philosophy. I have enjoyed all my classes and am looking forward to my courses next semester!

    Boston University is by far the friendliest campus I have ever visited. Many of the staff for services regarding student interaction were once students at BU, so they know what you want and need to know. There was not a single thing I disliked about the university.

    its a lot like NYU in the sense it's in and around the city. It's hard to know what it's like unless you attend

    Boston University's Theatre MFA program is a small grad program, shared with undergrads, taught by professors that are working professionals. The resources are great, the learning is hands-on and is largely production driven. Expect to work hard, long hours but the final product will be rewarding.

    It is a big school, which makes it easy to feel lost. The campus is spread out, so it's like you're living in the city instead of on campus. The food is amazing

    The courses can be very easy or very tough, depending on what field you are interested in. There are all sorts of people here, so it is not very difficult to find a group of friends with similar interests as you. The campus is very active and is in a prime location.
