Terry Gruber - 5/18/2015
Degree: History
Graduation Year: 1959
"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)."

"Although expenses are high, I think the experience you get at BU has made it worth for me to attend. I highly encourage students going anywhere they truly see themselves being a student and if BU is that for you, I think you'll leave feeling satisfied and accomplished that you chose BU. The experience has always been more than what you get in the classroom, but more so from the people you meet and the things you do outside your classes."
