A great location, some pretty excellent professors, and a very wide variety of extra-curricular activities.
I loved BU and I felt like I really belonged there. Boston is a perfect city for a student. There's so much to do, both at the university and in the city in general. Most of the professors I had across the board, though in my particular field, there were many who were brilliant and did amazing research but were bad at teaching. In those particular classes, the students had to band together and teach ourselves a lot, but we also grew pretty close that way.
I loved BU even more with each passing semester. Some complain that there is no campus, but the city itself is your campus. Much of the on-campus housing could do improving, but there are also nicer options if you do your research. The faculty are outstanding, the on-campus food options are great, and the Hockey team is really fun. It's great to mingle with other of the thousands of college students in Boston as well.
My four years at BU were an exceptional experience. I took full advantage of the wide variety of courses and extracurricular activities that they offered.
Great experience - way to meet diverse people from multiple backgrounds. a great way to make new friends and also learn from others who have different perspective. my college was right in the city so that was another great experience for me.
Boston University was a very challenging school to attend. Known nationwide for grade deflation (only allowing professors to give a prescribed percentage of As and Bs in each course, causing them to shift down grades to meet that curve). There are amazing professors, and I learned a lot there, but I had to work very hard to complete my degree.
Expensive, but great quality of education
Attending BU was more than an education, it was a learning experience in all the best senses if the word. It was a coming of age in an academic atmosphere grounded upon a platform of social maturation. The history department had a stellar reputation and we as students benefited from some of the best minds in the field. Yes, this was a long time ago for me, but, I am aware that BU''s reputation as an institution of higher education ib all fields has increased exponentially over the years
I really love the spirit of Boston University. Not only were the students inspired and eager to learn, but the professors encouraged professionalism and intelligence. My program was small but we were not competitive. We respected that our program was unique and were excited to share with one another. I really loved my learning experience at Boston University, and I sincerely pray that my future programs will be equally as engaging, challenging and enjoyable.
Boston University is a great school for Biomedical Engineering. There are a lot of research opportunities on campus and provided you with the essential tools necessary to do well in industry or academia. However that being said it is definitely not the easiest school it challenges (at least the BME program definitely did).
