Hi! This isn’t random at all, I would love to help! :) BU’s classes are definitely on the more challenging side compared to many colleges in the country. They’re not impossible, but they require a lot of work and dedication, no matter what major you are. What’s fantastic is that many of the professors are willing to work with you, so if you aren’t doing so well in a class, it’s not the end of the world. That’s probably one of the things I really like about BU–the classes may be tough but you actually learn something from them; your grade truly reflects the effort you put into your classes.
You will meet hundreds of different people in your 4 years at BU; you just have to find your niche. You will meet some awesome friends, and then meet some people who aren’t so nice. What’s cool is that when you first come, you won’t know anyone, and no one knows you. It’s the perfect time to find your special group of friends.
There are many things I love about BU. It’s located in the Back Bay area of Boston so it’s right in the middle of the city. Everything is accessible, either by walking or taking the T. There’s so much to do around and out of the campus. I may have only completed my freshman year at BU, but I can honestly say I was never once bored. I find myself walking the 10 minute walk to Newbury Street to go shopping, or running along the Esplanade, hanging out with my friends on Comm Ave, and visiting my friends in other Boston schools (there’s so many!!!)
I encourage you to visit the school (I can even give you a personal tour if you wish haha) and familiar yourself with the school. A city school such as BU isn’t for everyone (people complain there’s no actual campus but that’s a lie), but I think you should come and experience it for yourself. Good luck!
PS. I LOVE your tumblr name :P
