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 a true Urban Campus because it isn't surrounded by a gate and is really a part of the city. The people are ready to experience new things in a modern fast paced but still historically rooted city; a true juxtaposition. Students are intellectually curious, ready to ask new questions to existing or new problems, and find out how they will contribute to the world.

    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.

    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.
