Despite growing up only a half hour away, attending BU was a huge culture shock. I had grown up amongst the affluent, but had never experience such showy displays of wealth until my Freshman year. I hate to generalize, but I believe this is due to the fact that many students are from NY, NJ, MD, etc.

At the same time, the great thing about BU is that students come from everywhere. My floor represented 20 different states.

My social life was lackluster until I got a decent fake, and I think the vast majority of BU students would say the same thing. BU is quite strict when it comes to partying on or near campus.

In terms of academics, I couldn't have asked for a better education. BU offers classes in basically everything, and the vast majority of professors are so passionate about what they teach that it's almost impossible for you not to be inspired. Corny, I know.
