What Students Are Saying

4.16 Average Rating
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.
Katherine from Joliet, IL
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.
