What Students Are Saying

4.16 Average Rating
Boston University is an elite university that is constantly improving. It is a very expensive college but has a lot of resources for its students. Students who wish to attend should be somewhat independent and not afraid to take full advantage of the school's resources as well as the resources in the city of Boston.
Daniel from Staten Island, NY
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.
