I'd have to say the best things about Boston University are the academics and the location. I love being in the center of the city and I couldn't ask for better, more interesting classes.
Its location may be great, but its campus is not! Our dorms are pretty awful, our campus is spread out along Comm Ave and we just lack general cohesiveness within the campus.
Great Urban Campus with easy access to Boston.
Some of the older buildings are not very comfortable in the seasons with less then ideal climate control.
The professors are all experts in their field and some have even written the text books or are famous in their field.
It is expensive. Although the campus and academics are good its a big dent in the wallet going here. Also, tuition continues to rise despite its current expensiveness.
Boston University works with local businesses to lead the fight against college sexual assault.
Every student at this school needs Determination. You do not have a good experience if you do not take the intiative.
Every student at this school needs Walking shoes. It is a very large campus and you will be walking EVERYWHERE.
Another awesome thing is Career opportunities. BU really emphasizes undergrads being able to get real life experience in the fields that they are going to be working in. Most professors also have other jobs in the fields that they are teaching (other than being a professor) which makes it really easy to network, get internships, and eventually jobs when the day comes.
I wish I knew The freshman 15 is real.
