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.
Living in the city, and not on an artificial campus, really prepared me for "grown up" life more than anything else. Also, the girls I met in my sorority are amazing. It's a big place, but that...

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.
Boston University works with local businesses to lead the fight against college sexual assault.
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.
Every student at this school needs Walking shoes. It is a very large campus and you will be walking EVERYWHERE.
