What the students are saying about:

Boston University (1 of 10)

Boston University

With a storied history, bustling sports culture, and more than 50 colleges in the city, Boston is one of the most exciting places in the country to be a student. And BU is right in the thick of it. "Often, friends and I would go around the city to eat in Boston's 'little Italy' the North End, or catch a Red Sox game, or go to a local bar and shoot pool. The benefit, for me, of going to college within a city was there never seemed to be a shortage of anything to do," says Rachel, a theatre major. Since BU does not have a traditional campus like nearby Northeastern or Harvard, Boston is a major part of every student's day-to-day life. For most, this is a highlight. Sarah, an international relations student, says, "Boston is one the best things about BU. It is such an amazing city to be a student in."
