What is your overall opinion of this school?

What sets Boston University apart from the rest is not only the simplicity of the campus (as it spans over the one main road of Commonwealth Avenue), but also the caliber of academics. I am a student of the College of General Studies (matriculating into the Questrom School of Business), and have seen this trait amongst all of my professors as they are thorough with course materials, but even more so when interacting with students outside the classroom (especially with office hours). Professors care about student success and it is paramount for the overall success that is found at BU.

The school is amazing. I have found many extracurricular activities I may not have planned on joining. However, there is such opportunity to discover new things. In addition, the city itself is unforgettable. Discovering Boston is an experience like no other.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Boston University is a great school for the city lover. While it's not a traditional campus, it certainly is beautiful, and downtown is just a train ride away. Academically, Boston University is a great place to learn with moderate class sizes. There's a student group for everyone to join, making it a great place for every young adult.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It is a great university but there aren't many research opportunities for students other than engineers and medical students. Food is good and since Boston University is in the middle of the city, all the services are easily accessible. You easily make friends and find your own community.

It is an amazing university which offers a plethora of activities and resources for your benefit. I absolutely love it! The campus is right by the heart of the city, and you never run out of things to do. The professors are always there to help, and you get the best education possible.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love Boston University because the environment on campus can be either suburban or urban, appealing to whatever type you like. The academics are great and you are really getting the education you're paying for; however, you are paying a lot. The people at BU are very sweet and caring of others' best interests. There's always something to do or a club to join no matter what you're into.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I've lived in Massachusetts my whole life and when I found out I was accepted to Boston University, I was pretty nervous. Going to school here, I can say that everything is amazing. Everything from dorming (which honestly can be a hit or miss) to the campus food (Rhetts, how I miss your Terrier Sunrise sandwich...) has been a wonderful experience even on not-so-wonderful days. It's perfect for me socially wise and academically wise. It doesn't hurt that it happens to be located in the best city on the East Coast either.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Boston University is a great institution. I decided to transfer to BU after a year and a half of moving in and out of other colleges and universities, and I finally found the right fit. The school is pretty big, but you get all of the necessary attention in your own major, which allows you to have a "big school" feel while getting the attention you would at a smaller school. The facilities and food are really good, and you can always find something to do. The location is great, but there's a lot of walking to be done, so space your classes and choose your dorm wisely!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Boston University is a wonderful and diverse institution. There are many places to visit and activities on campus to partake in. Academically, professors challenge students to learn and grow. While this university is not labeled as one of the ivy league institutions, it is considered a highly sought university.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I have found that BU is an extremely inviting and active community with something for everyone. Coming from the Midwest, I was really nervous that I wouldn't fit into the urban climate that Boston and BU has, but I've found that if you take the time to find a community or activity (and trust me, there are plenty), your experience, both academically and socially, is amazing.
