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!

    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.

    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.
