Most Helpful Review for Boston University

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 wasn't my first choice, but I can't imagine being anywhere else. I'm home for my first summer and miss it more than I ever thought I would. BU has excellent academics, lots of activities, and most of all wonderful people!

    BU has so many resources it's almost overwhelming. Everyone is there to help you. What you learn is very relevant to the real world.

    BU is such a vibrant campus. The students here come from all around the world, and you can learn so much from everyone you meet. Also, the options for extracurriculars and academic opportunities are ENDLESS.

    The university has evolved into a community that lets you choose your future. It's definitely expensive; but coming from a lower-middle class family, it's possible. BU allows you to grow and learn academically and personally, completely at your speed.
