Campus Visit Notes for Boston University


Visit Description:

We visited for a Winter Event at BU and it was super informative! It's basically like an extended information session in the beginning, then a student panel. They split us up after into the different prospective colleges and then had a separate student panel for that again. They gave us a free pass to their dining hall and my family and I were able to sample the food at BU, which was amazing! If you can go, definitely recommend signing up for their Winter Event.

Hotel/Lodging Recommendations or Comments:

Stayed at the Marriott at Copley Place and lovely staff, very helpful. Easy access to the Prudential through the skybridge and always plenty of taxis right outside to drive you to your destination.
