BU was my absolute last choice, but I ended up coming here because it was the most financially realistic option for my family. The art program is something of a gem here- faculty are incredible, the assignments meaningful and challenging.

The social life is definitely intimidating and hard to get immersed in right away…its a huge school, so finding perfect friends doesn't come right away. The nightlife is similar- getting into parties is a lot about building connections. But with a little time, you find the right people to hang with, and learn where to go. Its really an incredible place, i was one of those kids who was super involved in teams and clubs in high school, but i'm not even very "involved" here yet, and i'm having the time of my life!

There's a lotttt of kids here, but if you feel like you can find your place, BU has an amazing amount to offer.
