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!

    BU is great if and only if you're willing to put in the work. The campus is extremely picturesque and located in a nice neighborhood in Boston. I highly recommend visiting even if you don't plan on attending... they may change your mind.

    It is an absolutely amazing school that gives the feeling of adventure, academic intensity and a perfect home away from home. Being in the city of Boston just adds to the overall experience, and the views along with the opportunities one can find there are all but unfathomable. I would definitely say it should be a top choice for anyone interested in getting a phenomenal education along with the full college experience.

    I visited Boston University during the height of the winter storm and it was still a beautiful campus. The themed dorms are great for students who would rather room with those like them. I also appreciate the green line transit being available and convenient to all.

    This is a great school if you're looking for something in a very urban environment. It was not the right fit for me for numerous reasons, including the lack of a normal campus, grade deflation and lack of school spirit. It's a good school, but I don't think it's worth the expensive tuition in the end.

    BU is a great place to find your way. They are full of resources, lively spirits, and people to help encourage your future, but you just need to know how to find them yourself and utilize them. It is a great place to learn life, get profound education, build friend relationships, and career preparation.
