WHAT I LIKED

Academics: If you're a humanities major, BU is absolutely worth looking into. I have only enrolled in one class that had more than 50 people (it had 60). All of the professors are genuinely interested in what you have to say, and most of the English professors are generous with extensions if needed. Dorms: If you live in the normal freshman dorms (Warren and West), tough luck. Try to get placed into one of the smaller halls if you can, unless you really want to socialize. Housing is really luck of the draw, but it is guaranteed as long as you pay your deposit on time. Food: Granby/Hillel is the best dining hall. Marciano is a solid second place with more variety. The GSU has lots of options, but it can get pricey if you eat there all the time. Social Life: BU is huge, so don't plan on a community automatically forming around you. Go to club meetings and on-campus events.
