    Communications - Film & Television, Class of 2000

    Not much. My counselor was bent on getting me credits to graduate. He didn't care if the classes made sense as long as it got me a degree...with which I've done nothing because I didn't follow a specialized path to get a good job in a particular field.

    International Relations, Class of 1992

    Diverse and scholarly. Not a big social or sports school. Very academically oriented

    4 Rated January 2016

    Extremely heterogeneous. Students come from many different states & countries. There is no one prevailing culture. Instead, there is a club or group for every different hobby and philosophy.

    The facilities were a bit dated at the time, especially considering the cost associated with attending a private university. Today the facilities there are top notch.

    Sports were a popular activity and the school had a Greek culture. But I don't think they did a very good job of building on school-wide activities such as 'spring fling' at other schools.

Questions & Answers

What is the campus setting like?
1 Answer
  • Boston University boasts a rich history of diversity. It was the first university to open all divisions to female students in 1872, and the campus where Martin Luther King, Jr. chose to pursue his doctoral studies in theology. The tradition continues today with attendance by 33,000 students from all U.S. states and some 140 countries. Students can explore more than 250 undergraduate, graduate, and professional programs of study. Popular majors include business, management, and marketing; social sciences; communication, journalism, and related programs; health professions; and biological and biomedical sciences.

How does this school prepare me for life after graduation?
1 Answer
  • As might be expected at an urban university, students often seek internships and academic enrichment experiences in the city. True to its history – BU was one of the first schools to offer study abroad programs – the university participates in more than 400 research, service, and education programs on every continent. Such experiences help BU students prepare for life after graduation, and the school’s career center is ready to assist at every stage. A minimum of two career expos are held on campus each year, bringing a variety of employers directly to BU students. An active alumni association encourages grads to stay connected to the school, use its resources for further professional development, and network with other Terriers both online and at hundreds of social events.

What do the locals in this city like to do for fun?
1 Answer
  • From running the Boston Marathon to catching a Red Sox game to sampling every imaginable cuisine, students love to take advantage of what the city of Boston has to offer. The main campus itself, however, can be described as “a city within a city” and bustles with its own activities. (More than three-fourths of undergrads live on campus.) Whether rock climbing at the state-of-the-art FitRec Center, catching a concert at Agganis Arena, or participating in one of 500 student clubs, BU students are never bored. The university competes in NCAA Division I athletics, and students especially enjoy cheering on their nationally ranked men’s and women’s ice hockey teams. Go Terriers!
