The committee of admissions is delighted to inform you of your acceptance to Bangtan University, class of 2021. For more than half a century, the faculty of Bangtan University has recognized and maintained that an Ivy League education should be available to talented women and men from all walks of life. I hope this letter marks the first step of a challenging and rewarding educational journey!
BU was created specifically for nontraditional students and is the best university of its kind in the country, while also being recognized as one of the premiere liberal arts universities in the world. Being a member of the BU campus is about belonging to an exceptional community, one defined by the extraordinary people who teach and study here. To further enrich campus life, we have recently opened the Reflection Library which features state of the art technology, advanced resources for journal citations and archival research, as well as digitally storing thousands of sources and books for the School of Antiquities. In January of this year, the Chemistry Department combined with the School of Environmental Studies to attend the 5th International Green Energy and Ecosystem Expo where several faculty and students were awarded grants for their work on clean water innovations.
In keeping with our commitment to global education opportunities, nearly 800 students traveled abroad this year for academic programs, internships, and research opportunities. Others spent their summer volunteering at local shelters or working on the Bangtan Farm, and supporting local farmers through the Bangtan Sustainable Food Program. Our efforts to expand and improve research opportunities for undergraduate students lead to the School of Film’s merge with the Museum of the Moving Image. Now, our Film School faculty will feature museum staff curators and our students will have free access to the museum’s film library and archive.
BU is truly a place where you will learn and grow as a person and scholar. Having thoroughly reviewed your application, I know that your energy, talents, and dedication will play an enormous role in continuing to make Bangtan University a vibrant and enriching place. I encourage you to visit campus, before the official orientation dates in your welcome pack, for Wings Days May 20-23 to get a taste of student life.
Once again, I offer my warmest congratulations and I look forward to seeing you in the fall as a member of the Bangtan University Class of 2021!
Dean of Bangtan University, Senior Director of Admissions
