What is your overall opinion of this school?

Consisting of a sophisticated and diverse student population, I have found a home at Boston University. I love living in such a cosmopolitan city, though it can get a bit pricey! I could not feel more safe walking the streets and am very grateful for the cleanliness of the area. I would recommend this college to anyone who desires a challenge and welcoming environment.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Overall, BU is a good school. The academics are good, the professors are usually quite good, and discussion is good in class. Also the food is pretty good people complain, but I don't know why. HOWEVER - it is quite hard to find a community here, especially if you're naturally introverted. I've been here about three semesters now, and I still only have a couple (distant) friends. It's hard to feel like the place is one cohesive school - it feels more like you're just living in the city and taking classes. If you're looking for a traditional school community, don't choose BU.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love Boston University! Like every school, it has its ups and downs, and your experience will depend on you. The campus is huge, but the fact that it is all on one long street makes it manageable. You'll know where everything is soon after being around campus a few times. If not, there are maps all along the street, the BU mobile app provides a map as well, and there are always friendly students and professors to help if you're lost! The food depends on where you eat, but compared to neighboring schools its generous and high quality, and if you don't agree, the meal plans provide options! You can use your convenience and dining points for cafes, restaurants, and bakeries around Fenway and Kenmore Square. My favorite parts of being a student at BU are the reputable students and challenging academics. I am engaged in all of my classes and constantly encouraged to ask questions and take other actions to maximize my understanding. Most of the students are reasonable, open-minded and friendly people!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Boston University is a great school with lots of opportunities for students of all kinds. It is a very diverse campus and has a very welcoming atmosphere for everyone. it is a very academically focused university, although the students and staff make sure that everyone has a good time and enjoys their college experience while they work towards their goals. The students and staff are all very friendly and encouraging, and it is clear that people are happy to help if it is needed. This is a great environment for students to thrive while they earn their degrees, experience college life, and work their way towards being independent, successful people.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

BU encompasses the entirety of Commonwealth Avenue - or CommAve, as the students like to call it. BU is great, however, CommAve has got to be the most dangerous road I've ever encountered in my life. At any given moment, there are cars, the subway, bikers, and pedestrians, all trying to cross the same street at the same time. It's so dangerous. Other than that, BU provides ample opportunities for student engagement and learning.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Boston University is honestly a fantastic school. The overall attitude of the entire place is just good vibes all around. It's pricey, but that might be the only real downside of the entire University. Once you're there, learning right in the heart of Boston, all the money seems worth it.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Boston University is good for people who are good at finding their tribe. It's very hard to feel socially comfortable if you don't join club and stay in constant contact with new friends. If you are in the science department as a chemistry, biology or any other hard science, get ready because professors make it hard to do well unless you are constantly studying. just pay attention to how things are weighed in your classes and get a phone number from at least one person in every class so you can ask them questions and study together. Get to know professors throughout the year, so it won't be awkward when you have to ask for a recommendation.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It is a nice school with many research and academic opportunities. Most professors are available during office hours and via email. The on-campus housing and dining halls have much to be desired, especially for the cost. The campus is extremely pretty during the fall and the spring and most of the students are extremely nice. It's a great college situated directly in the middle of Boston.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I come from a small town in Georgia and Boston University is about as different as different could be from everything I had experienced previously and I love it. There is always something to do on campus and the inner city is just a T ride or a quick walk away. Social scene aside, the academics and professors at Boston University are incredible and truly dedicate themselves to helping their students learn.
