What is your overall opinion of this school?

The school is commensurate with the cost. While the Metropolitan facilites and academic advising are lacking there are plenty of open office hours from professors that help make up for these areas. I feel all the courses I am interested in are available at night and many online helping with schedules for full time students.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Boston University's academics are challenging. The class sizes are large but the professors are available and there are lots of resources available. There are a wide variety of on campus housing options and dining options, all of which are good. There isn't much of a sports culture or greek culture on campus but that is made up for by all that the city of Boston has to offer.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love it! Definitely academically rigorous, but I wouldn't want to be anywhere else. Extremely welcoming environment right in the heart of Boston. Plenty of opportunities to take on what ever career path you want. Never a dull moment at BU, and you have the opportunity to do as little or as much as you'd like!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Boston University is a diverse school with endless opportunities. No matter what type of learner you are or what type of extracurriculars you are interested in, Boston University has a wide range of choices of where students can study, what classes students can take, and what activities students decide to involve themselves in. The academics and extracurriculars are not the only diverse parts about Boston University; the students who attend the college come from a plethora of backgrounds. There is something about the school that makes people of all different origins come together in unity and work towards the common goal of success. The drive that is present within the students who attend Boston University provides motivation to put your best foot forwards everyday, and the studious work ethic of the students allows me to always keep my academics a priority. Boston University has great professors who are always available and who are truly willing to help their students succeed.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Boston University is an extremely diverse environment surrounded by one of the best cities in the world. If going out is not your forte, there is always something to do in the city. BU also just insured everyone's financial aid this year, which really is a testament to how much they truly care about their students. Love the school.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Boston University has some good features and some not-so-good features. Some of the good features include the feeling of community, the abundance of extracurriculars, the research opportunities, and the location. Though the school may seem large, it is easy for one to find his/her niche. The abundance of extracurriculars makes it easy for others to join a club or team they are interested in. The research opportunities offer a way for students to get involved in something that they find fascinating or to boost their resume. The location gives students access to wonderful opportunities that could be around them such as internships or volunteer experiences. However, there are not-so-good features as well. Some of these include the unreliable BU shuttle system, the lack of school spirit, and the amount of work. The BU shuttle system is not the best or the most reliable for transportation, and sometimes, it is easier to walk than to wait for it. The school’s lack of some football team or other outstanding athletics (besides hockey) contributes to a lack of school spirit with low student turnout for sports events. In addition, the academics are tough, leading to a large amount of work, especially for those in the STEM fields or in the honors college. Overall, I enjoy this school.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Boston University is, overall, a great school. Most professors care about their student's education and are willing to work with them to ensure that they achieve what they want to. There is no shortage of activities to take part in. There is everything from fraternities to club sports to board game club. The students themselves are a very accepting and active bunch. The food in not the best, but no where near the worse. It does, however, get tiresome quite quickly. As for living spaces, they are pretty comfortable. They are pretty much what you expect of a college dorm.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I have really enjoyed studying here, even though it has only been a semester. The deciding factor, for me, was the fact that I am still able to pursue a degree in Japanese and linguistics, all while studying music in a very conservatory-like environment. On top of all that, the city is right on our doorsteps, creating an amazing, invigorating environment in which to learn.
