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.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

My college search led me to believe that I needed a small, traditional campus in order for me to reach my full potential in a community of higher learning. BU, however, changed my perspective on this matter. I see BU’s grandeur as not a hindrance for anyone wishing to find their own community but rather a gateway to a much larger pool in which someone can have enough room develop socially and academically. I know that I do not feel limited by BU and its endless possibilities for classes to take, clubs to join, and experiences to explore. I've easily gotten used to the long walk along the Charles River from one end of campus to the other. I can honestly say I've found a community that allows me to grow and succeed as so many BU students have before me. My professors are all available and engaged, my class engagements and discussions are relevant, and my coursework is engaging and enjoyable. I love every inch of Boston University.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Boston University is a great university with opportunities for all people. No matter who you are, you will be able to find peers with similar interests. This makes it a place for all people to truly learn and enjoy their college experience. The classes at this institution are definitely difficult, but most of the staff and professors want to help you succeed (this will depend on the department). However, it definitely is a college to consider because it truly does have a place for everyone.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love it here! I applied early decision and do not regret my decision at all. I have had so many great opportunities on-campus and have made vital connections for my future career. Plus, the city of Boston is such a great location. I have friends at Northeastern and Harvard that I see weekly!
