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.
