I Think I’ll Go to Boston

Looking back on my four years at Boston University, it is difficult for me to pin down exactly what drew me here.  

The communications program is phenomenal.  The faculty is first-class.  Boston is a great city to be in as a college student.  But I think that what sealed the deal with Boston University was when I first visited in April of 2008.

The campus had begun its spring transformation and was blooming back to life from the winter months.  It enveloped me.  I felt like I already was a student there.  I could see myself walking along the Charles River during a study break.

Without hesitation, I could picture milling around the dining hall with new found friends. The scholars around me exuded excellence.  I was surrounded by future CEOs, scientists and educators. It was then that I knew that I would flourish at BU.
