What is your overall opinion of this school?
Far and away, the best thing about BU is Boston itself. From sports, to music, to shopping, to just walking around, Boston really does provide a lot of the fun of going to BU. The trick is finding fun things to do at night before you're 21. Boston is known for being strict on carding, and unless you want to spend a lot of time in frat house basements, freshman year you're best off just exploring some on campus options and spending time with friends. There's usually always a party going on, or a play happening, or best of all a sporting event, particularly, hockey. Really, there's never a shortage of things to do, but you'll be surprised how much time you'll actually end up wanting to just hang out with friends in your room or in the dining hall.
